Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell
An award-winning comedy based on the life and writings of talented Spectator columnist and notorious alcoholic Jeffrey Bernard about friendship, failure and coming to terms with life. In a life devoted to stylish self-destruction, an unrepentant gambler, fervent drinker and serial womaniser, Bernard publicised his very individual philosophy on vodka, women and racecourses to hilarious effect. From a bar stool in this favourite Soho pub, the raffish writer entertains us with a stream of hilarious anecdotes, and nostalgically regales tales of other Soho characters that have gone the way of the demon drink!
