West Yorkshire Playhouse: The Graduate
The Graduate to open at West Yorkshire Playhouse in first major revival since the West End Premiere!
It’s been 50 years since the release of the iconic hit film, The Graudate. We’re excited to say that the West Yorkshire Playhouse and Curve in association with Simon Friend and Gavin Kalin Productions*1 present The Graduate.
Based on Charles Webb’s novel, The Graduate sees an educated young man swept into an illicit encounter with an older married woman, setting them both on a thrillingly destructive course.
The Graduate stars Catherine McCormack (Braveheart, Spy Game) as Mrs. Robinson and Jack Monaghan (War Horse, Black Mirror) as Benjamin. The cast is completed by Emma Curtis playing Elaine, Tom Hodgkins as Mr Braddock, Rebecca Charles as Mrs Braddock and Richard Clothier playing Mr Robinson.
The Graduate is adapted by Terry Johnson, based on the novel by Charles Webb and the motion picture screenplay by Calder Willingham & Buck Henry by special arrangement with StudioCanal.
Arriving at the West Yorkshire Playhouse on Friday 28h April, the show runs right through to Saturday 27th May.
