The Spoils at Trafalgar Studios

Trafalgar Studio One, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The Spoils starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kunal Nayyar at Trafalgar Studios.

Don’t miss the European premiere of the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway production of The Spoils, a razor-sharp new comedy written by and starring internationally acclaimed actor Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice) and The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar.

A cuttingly satirical glimpse of a lost soul searching to assent the reality of his situation. Perceptively disconcerting, The Spoils speaks to the exasperated, self-analysing millennial generation. A painfully awkward comedy, not to be missed!

The Spoils plays a strictly limited run from 27 May 2016 until 13 August 2016 at Trafalgar Studios.

STORY

Nobody likes Ben. Ben doesn’t even like Ben. He bullies everyone in his life, including his roommate Kalyan, an earnest Nepalese immigrant. When Ben discovers that his school crush is marrying a straight-laced banker, he sets out to destroy their relationship and win her back.
