Cool Hand Luke - Marc Warren ( out the first look image of Marc Warren in the stage adaptation of ‘Cool Hand Luke’.  Warren will star in a new adaptation in the West End based on Donn Pearce’s novel and we think Mr Warren looks pretty cool as ‘old blue eyes‘.

If you’re not aware of the 1967 movie, it’s the story of a WWII veteran turned convict & rebel, set in a prison camp.  So expect hard physical labour, lots of shouting by prison guards and the piece’s protagonist to be one of those play-by-my-own-rules kinda blokes we all like to pretend we are like.   We’re particularly interested to see if Warren has to eat 50 eggs a night like in that famous scene from the film and if that comes armed with a rather unpleasant aroma as a side effect.

The production opens at the Aldwych Theatre on Monday 3rd October, with previews from the 23rd September.  More details are available on the official site here or the Facebook site here.
