Original Production A Real Love Story . . .

2004

Dane Bank Theatre

ABOUT

In 2003, whilst training in Performing Arts at South Cheshire College, Inglenook’s William Forster chucked together a couple of poems inspired by his own condition of Cystic Fibrosis. Trust us, Will ain’t no poet, but what he did create was the beginnings of a humble stage production called 65 roses which was first staged in 2004 and didn’t leave a dry eye in the house.

 

SYNOPSIS

Jack and Chloe, childhood sweethearts and now adult lovers, both share a fatal illness, Cystic Fibrosis. Their dilemma? Cross infection is killing them both. The medical advice is to be apart and no longer physically interact. Their decision?

To stay together no matter what, with tragic consequences.

ABOUT

SYNOPSIS

A group of young adult friends share a genetic fatal illness, forcing a fixation of life and death to collide in a ferocious conflict of love, friendship and hope. What was once an innocent childhood promise becomes a violent tragedy.

BONUS EXTRAS

In one of the dress rehearsals in London, the figure of a woman briefly appeared at the back of the stage, scaring the life out of the cast and crew. It brought the rehearsal to a stop for nearly an hour! Some believe it was the ghost of Rose Bruford herself based on this image which some at the time claim is who they saw. The spirit of Rose Bruford has been seen around the school on many an occasion. We hope she liked the show!

Sam Palladio, who played the original narrator in the London 65 roses, has gone on to have a successful career in theatre and television. He is best known  for his role as Gunnar Scott in ABC's Nashville.
