Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell
by Keith Waterhouse
Dir: Heather Giles
Season runs 3 - 6 and 10 - 13 October 2013 (Wed to Sat x 2)
"Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell" centres around real-life journalist Jeffery Bernard, who wrote the "Low Life" column in The Spectator.
The play's title refers to the magazine's habit of printing a oneline apology on a blank page when he was too drunk or hungover to produce the required copy and a substitute article could not be found before the deadline for publication.
Its premise is that Bernard has found himself locked in overnight at his favourite public house, the Coach And Horses, and uses the occasion to share anecdotes from his life with the audience.
