Rain Man description
When 16 year old Charlie Babbit borrows his dad's car, he calls the cops. Determined to make it on his own, Charlie leaves.
When his dad dies, Charlie gets the car and some rose bushes - but not the money. Hot on the trail of the cash Charlie discovers an unkown autistic brother, Raymond with an extraordinary talent for numbers. Intent on saving his business, Charlie takes Raymond on a rollercoaster journey involving Las Vegas, gambling, learning to dance, and kissing. Raymond discovers a world beyond the hospital gates and Charlie, the meaning of unconditional love.
Based on Barry Morrow's original Oscar winning screenplay and re-imagined for the stage by Dan Gordon and director David Grindley, the play examines the nature of love, understanding and connection. Leading the cast in this funny, heart-warming and touching contemporary story is Hollywood movie actor, Josh Hartnett in his West End debut as Charlie and Olivier nominated actor, Adam Godley as Raymond.
