The infamous Jeffrey Bernard will be returning to where his legacy began as Norman’s Coach and Horses Soho stages Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell from May 7th – June 1st, 2019. The play comes at a crucial time for the pub and alongside a theatrical evening, gives people a chance to make a stand for an independent landlord under threat from pub giant, Fuller’s, despite 76 years of continued independent service as a thriving community pub and London’s first vegan and vegetarian pub.
The play tells the tale of Jeffrey who wrote the “Low Life” column in The Spectator in the 1970s where he chronicled his drunken debaucheries in Soho, especially at Norman’s Coach and Horses. It was inspired by the apology, “Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell” which was frequently written when he was unable to complete the column and follows the story of Jeffrey being locked in the pub overnight, sharing comically tragic anecdotes from his life.
