David Anderton, an Oxford-educated Catholic priest is assigned to a parish in a dispirited Scottish town on the Ayrshire coast. Lonely and adrift he befriends two unstable teenagers from the local school and is drawn into their exotic world. As events spin out of control he is forced to face his greatest trial yet. Adapted for the stage by Ian McDiarmid from The Booker Prize nominated novel by Andrew O'Hagan, Be Near Me is a compelling and moving story about love, morality and regret.

The Donmar returns to the Hall for Cornwall following last year's hit The Man Who Had All the Luck by Arthur Miller. Be Near Me is a co-production with the award-winning National Theatre of Scotland whose recent productions include the critically acclaimed Black Watch.
