Brokeback Mountain is coming to the stage in a new production

Brokeback Mountain
is heading to the stage for a new production.

Following the Oscar-winning movie adaptation of 2005, Annie Proulx's short story is now being turned into a play by producer Tom O'Connell.

Brokeback Mountain follows the emotional and physical relationship that develops between Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist when they are hired to look after grazing sheep in Wyoming, and the impact it has on their lives over the next 20 years.

Proulx said: "I am looking forward with sharp anticipation to the stage interpretation of the star-crossed lovers of Brokeback Mountain, who moved from the page to the screen and now, under the skilled hand of producer Tom O'Connell and the sensibilities of the company, to the stage - a strange journey for two messed-up wannabe cow-hands from Wyoming.

"The actors who pull on their scuffed-up boots will step into a difficult time in a hard place."

Ang Lee's film version scooped Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Score at the Academy Awards, and also picked up the top prize at the BAFTAs, Golden Globes, Independent Spirit Awards and more.
