Robert Lindsay stars in the powerful, poignant true story of Jack Cardiff, the go-to cinematographer in cinema’s golden age. Prism comes to the Arts Theatre from 18 to 23 November, following a sold-out run at London’s Hampstead Theatre.
His days of work and play on film sets long behind him, along with his liaisons with famous women, Jack surrounds himself with memorabilia from his lifetime’s work, and sits down to pen his autobiography.
It should be easy, but he would rather live in the past than remember it, due to the onset of Alzheimer’s. His wife Nicola (Tara Fitzgerald), his carer and his son at times morph into the stars he used to work with. Tickets start at £25.
