What I Learned From Johnny Bevan at Soho Theatre
The full London debut of What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, written and performed by Luke Wright, will be presented at the Soho Theatre, in central London, from 22 February to 12 March 2016, with an official opening on 24 February.
The production is described as a "poetic monologue" and will be directed by Joe Murphy. The producers are Luke Wright and Paul Jellis.
Synopsis: "At university the whip-smart, mercurial Johnny Bevan saves Nick, smashing his comfortable middle class bubble and firing him up about politics, music and literature. Twenty years later, as their youthful dreams disintegrate alongside the social justice they hoped for, can Nick, now a jaded music journalist, save Johnny from himself?"
What I Learned From Johnny Bevan enjoyed success at this year's Edinburgh Fringe and recieved a Stage Award for Acting Excellence.
