Play 3: A Kind of Alaska by Harold Pinter (1982)
Based on Oliver Sack’s memoir, Awakenings, Pinter’s thought-provoking play completes Rapture’s season of classic one-acts. Deborah was a lively sixteen-year-old and part of a close-knit family when she fell victim to a strange condition, a sleeping sickness. Twenty-nine years later, having been watched over by the same doctor, she awakens and gradually tries to adjust to the world around her.
