Rapture, Scotland's premier touring theatre company presents:

Rapture Bites

A short season of classic one act plays written by three of the most influential, groundbreaking and highly regarded writers of the last 100 years. Spanning the 20th century, with themes, characters and situations that resonate today, these are classic plays for a modern audience.

Enjoy a spot of light lunch with a scrummy slice of quality theatre, in your local venue.

Rapture presents a timeless masterpiece of love and regret and the human capacity for change. The Browning Version is set after the Second World War, at a boys' public school and on the eve of Greek Classics teacher, Andrew Crocker Harris', retirement.

The "Crock" is humiliated by his headmaster, mocked by his pupils and cuckolded by his cruel and disappointed wife. But one small act of kindness, from an unexpected source is about to revive the desiccated "Crock's " shattered life.

Moving, humorous and displaying a profound understanding of the human heart, only those made of steel will be able to sit through this play dry-eyed.


  • Standard £9 (price includes a light lunch to be taken into auditorium. Arrive at 11.45am. This will be served in the gallery)

Bring a group of 10 people and one person can go free.
