There's no God, you know, Dr Feldmann, but I know where they got the idea; they got it from music.

Music was everything to Stephanie. The passion was inherited from her mother and had blossomed into a successful career as a renowned violinist. But now, struck down by an unforeseen tragedy, she faces a life without her first love.

She is persuaded by her husband to visit Dr Feldmann to help her to come to terms with her condition. Dr Feldman's quietly probing questions force Stephanie to question everything she once believed - from her first steps into the music world to the basis of her marriage. Over a series of increasingly dramatic sessions, Stephanie is forced to face her deepest fears before she can finally face her future.

Duet For One is an intensely moving and ultimately life enhancing look at what happens when unexpected events lead you to revaluate your life. Belinda Lang (Single Spies) and Jonathan Coy (Downton Abbey) unite for this must-see revival of Tom Kempinski's multi-award winning play.

Based on the life of world renowned musician Jacqueline Du Pré, Duet For One premiered at the Bush Theatre in 1980 with Frances De La Tour and David de Keyser and had great success in subsequent West End and Broadway runs, including a major revival in 2009 starring Juliet Stephenson and Henry Goodman.  The film adaptation of Duet For One, released in 1986, saw Julie Andrews nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress.

Duration: 2 hours 5mins with interval

    A message from Ian McKellen: I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney. Live theatre has always been thrill...
