A Cool Million at the Jack Studio Theatre
Vanguard Theatre Company presents A Cool Million by Nathanael West adapted by Joss Bennathan at the Jack Studio Theatre in Brockley, south east London from 27 October to 14 November, with an official opening on 30 November 2015.
Described as a "brutally deadpan comedy and jaw-droppingly relevant and vicious satire on a society where greed is good, and everyone is out to make a quick buck" this world premiere follows three vaudevillian performers as they create the epic story of Lemuel Pitkin, an impoverished yet eternally optimistic young man who sets out to make his fortune at the height of the Great Depression.
The production is directed by Kate Bannister and produced by Robert Durbin for Vanguard Theatre. It will feature lighting design by William Ingham and costume design by Jackie Cottom.
The cast for the production includes Matthew Ashcroft, Robert Durbin and James Macnaughton.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
