‘Wherever you go and whatever you do, always play a real cool hand.’
Beneath a scorching Florida sun, Boss Godfrey watches the chain gang. Keeps his eye on Cool Hand Luke. War hero, trouble-maker, inspiration to his fellow inmates. And just the man Boss wants to crush...
Cool Hand Luke is the hard-hitting story of a true original. He’ll play it real cool in the face of brutality. He’ll always get back up after a beating. He’ll eat fifty eggs in an hour, to win a bet. A man who won’t conform no matter what it costs.
In a powerful new adaptation for the stage by Emma Reeves, based on Donn Pearce’s acclaimed novel, and directed by Andrew Loudon, Cool Hand Luke is the raw, uncompromising tale of sticking it to “The Man”.
