Ilkeston-born actor Robert Lindsay is to make a rare return to the area later this year as part of a national tour of Terry Johnson’s Prism
Lindsay, who appeared in the sell-out West End run of the show, will reprise his role as the double Oscar-winning cinematic master Jack Cardiff, ‘the man who made women look beautiful’ (Vanity Fair) at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal in October.
Jack Cardiff has retired to the sleepy village of Denham, Buckinghamshire. His days of hard work – and play – on some of the most famous film 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…
Born in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, Robert Lindsay grew up in the local area, attending Gladstone Boys’ School and then enrolling in the drama department of Clarendon College in Nottingham. His visit to the Theatre Royal Nottingham with Prism in October 2019 will mark a rare return to the stage in his home city.
