Staged Shawshank Redemption To Play West End

“Stephen King’s The Shawshank Redemption is to receive its UK stage premiere at the West End’s Wyndham’s Theatre this September. Written by Owen O’Neill and Dave Johns, the play is based on King’s 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption and follows the seven-time Academy Award nominated film of 1994, which starred Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.”
