Stuart: A Life Backwards at Theatre

Stuart Shorter is a chaotic, violent, motor mouth destitute man from Cambridge. Alexander Masters is a reserved, bookish member of the educated middle-classes.
Jack Thorne’s new play is based on Alexander Masters' much-loved, Guardian First Book Award winning biography of the same name. It describes the surprisingly comic story of their friendship and of Stuart’s exceptional life.
The two men first met in Cambridge in 1998, brought together by a common cause - the fight to free two homeless workers from wrongful imprisonment. However, an unlikely friendship blossomed and Alexander, with Stuart as both mouthy subject and brutal editor, starts to write the story of his life. And maybe, just maybe, to answer the question, "What murdered the boy I was?"
