The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama present Lost Empires by J.B. Priestley, adapted by Bert Coules.
In the months before the First World War, Richard Herncastle throws up his safe, dead-end office job in a grim Northern mining town and joins his famous Uncle’s illusion act, touring the grand Empire Theatres of England and Scotland. This is the story of Richard’s coming-of-age in the looming shadow of the terrible conflict which will see millions of young men die and an entire way of life vanish.
J.B. Priestley’s acclaimed novel is presented for the first time as a drama for the stage.
