Withnail and I talk by Actor Scott Handy 8 April Wincanton Town Hall
April 8 @ 6:30 pm - 9:15 pm£4 - £8
The seminal cult Bruce Robinson film (made in 1987 and rated a 15) is about two unemployed actors finding themselves through a haze of drink and drugs. This is a touching farewell to a lost era (the sixties) and a coming of age comedy about friendship.
Scott Handy, actor, and Head of Drama at Eton College (“the Other Place”) talks about how “Withnail & I” is a peculiarly British film that has shadowed his professional life, from encounters with “I” and “Uncle Monty” to his choice of drama school, and working with the original “Withnail” who inspired writer and director Bruce Robinson. Gin and Cider will be served.
