Sideways at the St James Theatre

St. James Theatre, 12 Palace Street, London, SW1E 5JA

Rex Pickett’s critically acclaimed play Sideways will receive its UK and European premiere at the St James Theatre.

Based on his beloved novel, which inspired the Academy Award and Golden Globe winning film, Rex Pickett’s stage adaptation fizzes with comedy and heartfelt emotion, and goes down better than a well-aged Pinot Noir.

Sideways will run from 26 May 2016 until 9 July 2016 at the St James Theatre.

STORY

If anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving!
Join best friends Miles and Jack on a hilarious journey into the heart of wine country with Sideways: The Play.
When a neurotic author, who is writing his way into a midlife-crisis, and an actor, who is marrying his way out of his, head out to Santa Barbara for a week of wine-tastings, they find out that there’s more to be savoured in California than a few new bottles. For when Miles and Jack meet the equally strong and complex Maya and Terra, the four of them learn just how intoxicating a good glass of wine and good company can be – for better and for worse.
