New production images have been revealed of Christine Mary Dunford’s newly adapted version of Lisa Genova’s best-selling novel STILL ALICE. The show opened last night at the Sheffield Lyceum and continues through to 24 November 2018 with a national press night at Richmond Theatre on Wednesday 19 September at 7.30pm.

Starring Sharon Small (Barbara Havers in The Inspector Linley Mysteries for BBC1, Trudi Malloy in Mistresses for BBC1, Christine opposite Hugh Grant, Nicholas Hoult and Toni Collette in the film adaptation of About A Boy) as Alice, the cast also includes Eva Pope, Martin Marquez, Mark Armstrong, Ruth Ollman, Micah Balfour and Anna Andresen.

STILL ALICE follows 50 year-old Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor at Harvard University, as she battles with early-onset dementia and explores the effects the disease has on identity, family and relationships. In 2014, Genova’s novel was adapted into a film starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin and Kristen Stewart.
