Deborah was a lively sixteen-year-old and part of a close-knit family when she fell victim to a strange condition, a sleeping sickness.

Twenty-nine years later, having been watched over by the same doctor, she awakens and gradually tries to adjust to the world around her.

Rapture presents an unmissable production of this astonishingly prescient play by one of the twentieth centuries most influential writers.

Performed as part of Rapture Bites – Lunchtime Theatre. A short season of three classic one-act plays written by some of the most influential, groundbreaking and highly-regarded writers of the last 100 years. Spanning the 20th century with themes, characters and situations that resonate today, these are timeless plays for a modern audience.

Enjoy a spot of lunch with a scrummy slice of quality theatre, as these productions will be performed at lunchtime, with venues providing a light lunch as part of the ticket price.
