The Secret Rapture
David Hare's 1988 play was adpated by the author as the 1993 film of the same title. Set in 1980s Britain, it examines the impact of Thatcherism on personal relationships within the family of a junior government minister after her father's death. Hare stated that its title refers to a nun's feeling of ecstasy on being received by God at the moment of her death, rather than the Protestant concept of the Rapture. Estranged sisters Isobel and Marion are forced to reunite when their father dies and they must decide how to handle Katherine, their young, alcoholic, mentally unstable stepmother who has been left nothing but the rural home in which they were raised. Directed here by the excellent Michael Fitzpatrick, with Rishad Noorani, Fabiana de Rosa, Anna Butterworth, Jim Schiebler, Helen Raiswell, Alashiya Gordes.
