New Website to be Launched

We are delighted to annouce that our website will be having an exciting new redesign, with a relaunch planned for Early June . 

Autumn 2015
Arthur Miller Season

 To honour the centenary of Arthur Miller's birth, Rapture Theatre, with support from Creative Scotland, will produce, in association with The Beacon in Greenock,  an Arthur Miller “Season”. This will consist of two classic Miller plays: All My Sons and The Last Yankee.

All My Sons 

Set just after the Second World War, in the backyard of Joe and Kate Keller, this gripping and passionate drama ranks as one of the classics of our time.
 Joe and Kate try to keep alive the memory of their son Larry, who disappeared in the war, by the planting of a tree in his honour .
But Larry’s disappearance is not the only part of the family’s past that they can’t put behind them. Not everybody has forgotten the court case that put Joe’s partner in jail or the cracked engine heads Joe’s factory produced, which caused the deaths of twenty-one pilots.
Following a stormy night, when Larry’s tree is blown down, Joe and Kate’s lives are threatened by a series of events that could destroy the very foundations of their lives 
With all the tension of a taut thriller, All My Sons is a powerful drama that crackles with emotion and excitement!  
 See the first classic play, from one of the finest playwrights of the twentieth century, in a great production by Scotland’s leading touring theatre.

 Direction: Michael Emans, Design: Neil Murray, Lighting Design: Sergey Jakovsky, Sound Design: Craig Johnstone

The Last Yankee 

To celebrate the centenary of Arthur Miller, Rapture Theatre is producing one of the legendary writer’s last great plays.

Leroy Hamilton, a descendant of one of America’s founding fathers and “The Last Yankee”,
lives a modest life as a carpenter and has eschewed the pursuit of the American Dream.
This has estranged him from his wife, Patricia, who is in hospital and suffering from depression.
Over the course of one day, Leroy and Patricia try to come to terms with Leroy’s choices and Patricia’s ‘illness’,
and they take a tentative step towards reconciliation and a brave new future.
The Last Yankee reflects Miller’s themes of the devastating consequences for those who “fail” to achieve the mythical riches of the American Dream.
Rapture Theatre is proud that The Last Yankee will be part of the Scottish Mental Health Film and Theatre Festival 2015.
Humorous and ultimately uplifting, The Last Yankee is classic Miller that is not to be missed.

Tour Schedule Announced Soon !
