Keith Waterhouse, who died aged 80 in 2009, always described himself as a lazy man, even though he produced a body of work that reduced his Fleet Street rivals to envious dismay – plays, film scripts, sitcoms and magazine articles flowed unceasingly from his vintage Adler typewriter (he hated new technology).

Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell is Keith Waterhouse at his best. The show opened in Brighton in September 1989, moved to Bath and made its triumphant London debut at the Apollo Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue in October of the same year. Sir Peter O'Toole appeared in a later revival at the Old Vic theatre, which was entirely sold out. On August 23, 1999, the London Evening Standard published a 'Bluffer's Guide' to enable readers to pretend they had seen it: "…thereby allowing dinner party conversations and water cooler debates to run their course unhindered by ignorance.” Even Jeffrey himself saw the play before he died in 1997 and there have been many revivals since.

The play affectionately chronicles a life of womanising, alcohol and gambling. Described as both self-destructive and a compulsive Lothario, Jeffrey, in his favourite haunt (The Coach and Horses pub in Soho) will regale, enchant and entice you into his world. Jeff is joined by a cast of ex-wives, mistresses, fellow gamblers, hardened boozers, jockeys, theatre-hacks and known-Soho-reprobates who help to weave a colourful, yet poignant play that celebrates a life well lived.
