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! Produced at the Old Vic by Paddy Wilson, Laurence Myers and Tom Kinninmont in association with Independent Image Ltd.Performers Peter O'Toole, Royce Mills, Timothy Ackroyd, Sarah Berger, Annabel Leventon.
Author Keith Waterhouse (based on the writings of Jeffrey Bernard). Director Ned Sherrin. Design John Gunter.
