For the very first time, the play ‘Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell’ is being staged where it was originally set at Norman’s Coach & Horses in Soho.
It follows a journalist who finds himself spending the night in his favourite pub after falling asleep in the bathroom.
Cold Feet’s Robert Bathurst is staring as Jeffrey Bernard in a run of performances which have been staged to raise awareness of the pubs threat of closure.
In response: a spokesperson for Fuller, Smith & Turner, said:
The Coach & Horses is an amazing and historic pub in Soho and it should be one of the gems in our Managed Pubs & Hotels business. As a result, we will be making a significant financial investment in this fantastic site and bringing it back into our Managed Estate.
The Coach & Horses will outlive us all – and we intend to play a positive part in the next chapter of the pub’s history. We have a proven track record of preserving iconic pubs – and this will be no exception.
Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell is on from the 9th May to the 1st.
