Sideways

The classic film Sideways delighted fans all over the world when it was released in 2004, building on the novel of the same name by Rex Pickett to explore the toxic world inhabited by Miles and Jack. Such a story is ripe for the stage, however, and with that in mind all eyes will be on the St James Theatre this May as the tale transitions to the capital.

Though it has already been seen by American audiences on the other side of the Pond, Sideways’ arrival in London is an important one, with Pickett himself excited for its appearance in the capital. It also follows in the footsteps of a wealth of shows here that have their origins on the written page or the big screen.

Sideways follows Miles and Jack in the run up to the latter’s wedding. To celebrate the ever-nearing big day the two head out into California’s wine country, where they deal with their midlife crises in different ways. With Mile’s insecurities with his writing career taking their toll and Miles’ indulgences getting the better of them, this is going to be a week to remember.

Pickett’s novel is a popular one and since its publication he has also followed it up with its sequel Vertical and its further entry Sideways 3 Chile.

But the journey for Sideways continues in London, where it runs at the St James Theatre under the direction of David Grindlay from Thursday 26th May 2016.
