2017 Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro’s literary masterpiece of undeclared love has entranced generations as a novel and film.

Starring Stephen Boxer and Niamh Cusack, Oxford Playhouse is delighted to be co-producing this World Premiere stage production, adapted by one of Britain’s most exciting young writers, Barney Norris.

A deeply atmospheric drama about time and memory, loneliness and longing, The Remains of the Day depicts the morally-compromised truth behind a world of manicured gardens, formal dinners and grand houses. As the fires rage through England during and after the Second World War, we get an intimate glimpse into one man’s half-lived life, realised too late.

The cast will be led by Stephen Boxer as the butler Stevens. His credits include Stories, Macbeth and King Lear (National Theatre) and Regeneration. Kenton is played by Niamh Cusack whose stage credits include My Brilliant Friend at Rose Theatre Kingston and The Winter’s Tale at Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The cast also includes Stephen Critchlow, Pip Donaghy, Edward Franklin, Miles Richardson, Sadie Shimmin and Patrick Toomey.
