Drawn loosely from life, Kean is a pretender of the highest order, as Sartre described him, 'the actor who never ceased acting.' His private life is a public performance, a tragic-comedy about a man with an insatiable appetite for romantic adventure, an ego as big as a stage and an inability to rescue himself from jeopardy. This cross-century collaboration is an unmissable portrait, redolent with greasepaint and overflowing with the life of the theatre. Sartre's play is a passionate, sexy, funny, full-blooded experience for anyone who loves Shakespeare, the theatre and great adventure.Performers Antony Sher, Sam Kelly, Joanne Pearce, Robert East, Jane Murphy, Barry McCarthy, Gemma Paige, Hanna Steen, Brendan Hooper, Oliver Beamish, Jeremy Hancock, Dodger Phillips, Alex Avery.
