Gavin & Stacey star Matthew Horne and Downton Abbey’s Ed Speleers, who was born in Chichester, star in this stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning film, which famously starred Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. When self-centred salesman Charlie Babbitt discovers that he has a long-lost older brother, Raymond, who has inherited the family multimillion dollar fortune, he sets out to get ‘his half’. Raymond is an autistic savant, has a remarkable memory and a genius for numbers. Determined to get his hands on the money, Charlie ‘borrows’ Raymond from the institution where he has spent most of his life. As the two brothers embark on a trip across America, Charlie soon discovers that Raymond is worth more than he could have ever imagined. It’s presented by West End theatre producer and film producer Bill Kenwright.
