Timothy West to star in award-winning play at Everyman

By • Southwest
Timothy West, Caroline Langrishe and Adrian Lukis star in The Handyman, an intelligent and stimulating story about law, justice and revenge, by award-winning screenwriter and playwright Ronald Harwood.

Cressida and Julian Field live comfortably in the Sussex countryside with their elderly Ukrainian odd-job man and friend of the family, Romka. He cooks, mends fences, trims hedges and grows vegetables. Cressida calls him her life-saver. Then suddenly two police officers from the War Crimes Squad arrive ... What has Romka done? Is he guilty? ... Is there a limit on punishment?...

The Handyman looks at questions surrounding culpability, retribution, universal responsibility and the possibility of evil, in a story that captivates and intrigues from start to finish.

Timothy West is one of the UK’s favourite stage and TV actors. His many stage credits include Ronald Harwood’s Quartet; Beecham; When We Are Married; The Old Country; The Winslow Boy; The Master Builder and King Lear at The Old Vic. He was appointed a CBE in 1984 for his services to drama.

Ronald Harwood is one of the world’s leading dramatists. His many plays include The Dresser; Taking Sides; Quartet; Mahler’s Conversion; An English Tragedy and Collaboration. He has written the screenplay for many films including The Pianist; The Dresser; The Diving Bell and the Butterfly; Being Julia; Oliver Twist and Taking Sides.

The Handyman plays at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham from Monday 17 to Saturday 22 September.
