The German expressionist classic by Georg Kaiser - From Morning To Midnight - makes its way to the capital in a new version by Dennis Kelly from November 2013, with Adam Godley among the cast members and Melly Still directing.
The story focuses on a bank clerk who has worked at his job for quarter of a century and steals a fortune in an effort to win the heart of an exotic Florentian woman. But when she refuses his advances he realises he has already started the ball rolling on the abandonment of ideals he has previously lived by. He leaves his family and heads into the city a changed man, hoping to spend his money on things that are worthy of it.
Adam Godley has appeared in a wealth of productions over the years and these have led to various Olivier award nominations, including the one for Mouth To Mouth at the Royal Court Theatre, Rain Man at the Apollo Theatre and Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle And Dick at the National Theatre. He has also appeared in the likes of The White Devil at the Old Vic Theatre and Cabaret at the Donmar Warehouse, whilst also finding the time to fit in screen work as well, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Love, Actually to The X Files: I Want To Believe and Son Of Rambow.
Georg Kaiser’s From Morning To Midnight has been a well regarded piece since it was penned in 1912 and it is likely to receive considerable attention when it appears on South Bank during the Christmas season. The expressionist hit runs at the Lyttelton National Theatre from Tuesday 26th November 2013 (previews from Tuesday 19th November 2013).
