Ernest Hemingway’s first full novel, Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises, launched a career that would encompass a wide range of stand-out novels of the 20th century, from A Farewell To Arms to The Old Man And The Sea, and today it is still held in high regards. With this in mind there is going to be a lot of fanfare when Trafalgar Studios 2 welcomes a new stage version of the classic text in February 2013. Featuring a talented group of actors, plus live music from the jazz band Tro Farouche, the play with take audiences back to the 1920s as we explore love, friendship and betrayal among the bullfights in Pamplona.
Fiesta will stand out among west end shows this year with its compelling story of an American expatriate, Jake, in Paris, whose war wound means that he cannot have a relationship with the woman he loves – Lady Brett Ashley. He also has an obsession with bullfighting and he and his friend Robert travel with Ashley and her new man to witness the sport in Pamplona, where a bullfighter named Romero is involved in the violent showcase.
Penned in 1926, the story is a semi-autobiographical piece that was inspired by Hemingway’s own time in Paris, helping audiences around the world to explore the world of British and American expatriates of the time.
Fiesta will begin at Trafalgar Studios 2 following the completion of The Silence Of The Sea with a run beginning on Tuesday 5th February 2013.
