Following the success of All My Sons, Rapture Theatre’s Arthur Miller season concludes with his final meditation on the American Dream: The Last Yankee.
A moving, humorous and ultimately uplifting show, The Last Yankee features a cast of top Scottish talent, including David Tarkenter and Pauline Turner, who both impressed the critics with their performances in All My Sons, alongside familiar TV and stage faces Jane McCarry (Still Game) and Stewart Porter (Shetland and River City).
Leroy Hamilton, a descendant of one of America’s founding fathers and “The Last Yankee”, lives a modest life as a carpenter and has eschewed the corporate rat race. This has estranged him from his wife, Patricia, who is in hospital and suffering from depression. Over the course of one day, Leroy and Patricia try to come to terms with Leroy’s choices and Patricia’s ‘illness’, as they take a tentative step towards reconciliation and a brave new future.
