Legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff has retired to the sleepy village of Denham, Buckinghamshire. His days of hard work - and play - on some of the most famous sets in the world are now long behind him, as are his secret liaisons with some of the most famous women in the world... Surrounded by memorabilia from a lifetime of 'painting with light', the writing of an autobiography should be an easy matter - were it not that Jack would now rather live in the past than remember it.

Terry Johnson's delightfully witty and poignant new play is based on the extraordinary life of double Oscar-winning cinematic master Jack Cardiff; 'the man who made women look beautiful'.

Terry Johnson returns to Hampstead as writer/director following his sell-out hit Hysteria starring Antony Sher and Ken (Hampstead Downstairs). He also directed Main Stage successes Race, Seminar and Old Money. His many West End credits include La Cage aux Folles, Mrs Henderson Presents and Dead Funny.
