Jack's play heads West...with Wine
YOUNG Nuneaton-born playwright Jack West , above, is taking his acclaimed drama, WINE, to the West End.
The play opens at the Tristan Bates Theatre, Tower Street, Covent Garden on Jan 9 in the heart of London's theatreland.
The two-hander play deals with the relationship of a twenties-something couple trying to piece together the shattering consequences of their first date.
This is what Elementarywhatson's critic said when he reviewed the play, starring Harriet Clarke and Josh Glenister as Sam and Mark, when it was showcased in West's hometown last May.
"Their sheer acting talent in handling what at times is a ferocious clash of verbal attacks was jaw-droppingly impressive and marks the pair out as obvious stars of the future.
"The emotional depth of their portrayal has its bedrock in an exceptional script by Nuneaton-born actor-playwright Jack West, a fellow graduate of the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA).
His examination of such a complex issue as abortion belies his 24 years as he about-turns many of the perceived gender perspectives."
