Step into the belly of the Blue Whale, where the dancers are hot and the music is cool. You’re handed a drink sent over by a mysterious woman at the end of the bar and she invites you to take a trip on her own unique rollercoaster.

Brainville at Night is a stylish and involving adventure into the film noir-ish world of Ingrid’s memories and imagination. So what if the doctors tell her that she lacks insight and the ability to empathise? Nothing is going to stop Ingrid. Labels like "fronto-temporal dementia" never meant anything to her anyway. Whatever happens, she carries the love, excitement and romance of her life within her.


Now if only we could convince the doctors to come along.

First Draft is delighted to bring their acclaimed production of Brainville At Night to the Old Red Lion following a sell-out run at the Jack Studio Theatre in 2013. Featuring music, movement, projection and a fantastic ensemble cast, Brainville At Night is the most original love story you will see this year.


Directed by Artistic Director Matthew Parker

Cast includes RSC and National Theatre actor Robert Hickson and West End actress Illona Linthwaite.
