The Orange Tree Theatre is delighted to announce their production of Tom Kempinski’s 1980 drama Duet for One.

You see, there’s no God, Dr. Feldmann, but I know where they got the idea; they got it from music.

Stephanie Abrahams (Tara Fitzgerald) is a world-renowned concert violinist at the peak of her career. But upon receiving life-changing news, Stephanie is forced to look for a new way to live. Her composer husband sends her to psychiatrist Dr Feldmann (Maureen Beattie), but Stephanie isn’t interested in offers of help. As her beloved music falls silent, Stephanie must dig deep into her past to face an unknown future.

Tom Kempinski’s moving and hopeful story has triumphed in the West End and on Broadway, later being turned into a feature film starring Julie Andrews and Alan Bates. 

OT Artistic Director Tom Littler said: “Duet for One is one of the great plays about music, but its resonance goes much wider. I'm delighted we’re producing Tom Kempinski’s beautiful chamber play. Tara Fitzgerald and Maureen Beattie are a dream cast, and Richard Beecham’s production will reinvent Duet for One for a new generation. We look forward to staging Grim Brenda in the future.”

Richard Beecham makes his OT debut directing Tara Fitzgerald (Stephanie Abrahams) and Maureen Beattie (Dr Feldmann) in this new adaptation accompanied by live music. 

The production opens on 16 February, with previews from 11 February, and runs until 18 March 2023.
