The astonishing true story of the man who made Hollywood's greatest divas beautiful.
Following a sold-out run at London’s Hampstead Theatre, Robert Lindsay stars as the legendary Jack Cardiff.
Jack has retired to the sleepy village of Denham, Buckinghamshire. His days of hard work - and play - on some of the most famous film sets in the world are now long behind him, as are his secret liaisons with some of the most famous women in the world... Surrounded by memorabilia from a lifetime of ‘painting with light’, the writing of an autobiography should be an easy matter - were it not that Jack would now rather live in the past than remember it.
Robert Lindsay is 'magnetic' (THE GUARDIAN), 'perfect' (THE TIMES) and 'glorious' (MAIL ON SUNDAY) in Terry Johnson's delightfully witty and poignant play based on the extraordinary life of double Oscar-winning cinematic master, Jack Cardiff.
Multi-award winning Terry Johnson’s many hits include Hysteria, La Cage aux Folles, Mrs Henderson Presents and Dead Funny.
Double Olivier Award-winner Robert Lindsay’s theatre credits include Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (West End) and The Entertainer (Old Vic Theatre). Television credits include My Family and Genius.
Written and directed by Terry Johnson
