Director Christopher Haydon‘s production of Kazuo Ishiguro’s THE REMAINS OF THE DAY has opened at Northampton Royal & Derngate, to rave reviews:

★ “Christopher Haydon’s production…gives us well-orchestrated, cerebral theatre.” The Guardian (read the full review )

★ “Haydon…exploit(s) the possibilities for fascinating juxtapositions and revelatory contrasts […] It’s a brilliantly paced, impeccably performed piece of theatre.” Whats on Stage (read the full review) 

★  “The challenge, for […] director Christopher Haydon, was to make the story, which takes place almost completely in Stevens’s head, before and after the war, coherent. It does succeed and I came to enjoy the abrupt time changes from pre to postwar, often signalled by something as small as someone putting on a hat.” The Times (read the full review)

★  “Christopher Haydon’s direction sees the cast moving around the stage like the well-oiled machine that an English country house was meant to be” Broadway World (read the full review)
