SHAWSHANK1A01big
The Shawshank Redemption

From the Edinburgh Festival to The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, this new and groundbreaking production of THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION went on to win critical acclaim in 2013...

Inside Shawshank you have two options - get busy living or get busy dying. This witty and poignant new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic tale of death and life in a men’s prison is set to be the theatre highlight of this year’s Fringe. Omid Djalili heads a powerful cast in a timeless story of hope and triumph over adversity. Written by Owen O’Neill and Dave Johns. Directed by Lucy Pitman-Wallace. “Outside I was as straight as they come. I had to spend time in Shawshank to become a crook” (Andy Dufresne).

Omid plays the character of Red in a new stage production of The Shawshank Redemption. Red was played by Morgan Freeman in the 1994 film version.
