Pilot Theatre and York Theatre Royal by special arrangement with Studiocanal present

By Graham Greene

Brighton Rock

Adapted By Bryony Lavery

Fred is found dead – they deny it was murder.

Rose is in love – they say she’s in danger.

And that boy, Pinkie….  They say he’s evil – but what has he done?

As two seventeen year olds, Pinkie and Rose get embroiled in a vicious gang war in Brighton, one brutal murder leads to the next. The police are impassive – but the courageous and life embracing Ida Arnold wants the truth. Nothing scares her. Whatever the cost, she’ll see justice done.

Pilot Theatre and York Theatre Royal are proud to bring the dark underworld of Graham Greene’s classic novel Brighton Rock to the stage in this new adaptation by acclaimed writer Bryony Lavery.

An unmissable version of this gripping noir thriller.
