A bar in Jamaica. The early 1960s. When womanizing, hell-raising film star Peter Finch meets Eletha Barrett, a charismatic island girl, they both get more than they bargained for. The relationship between Peter and Eletha scandalises Hollywood, and culminates in Finch’s Oscar-winning,performance in Network.

Reveals for the first time how the backdrop to Finch’s iconic performance was as fiery as the role he played.

“A brash and provocative piece of theatre... "Finchy" couldn't be better cast... [Hogan's] portrayal is compellingly tormented.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)

“Engaging, well-constructed new play... Hogan shows the film star’s inner turmoil... Donovan’s captivating.”

Dave Hollander (The Stage)

“A suave chemistry... Donovan plays the Jamaican dancer with grace, while Hogan is suave as Peter... A sweet homage.”

Will Longman (London Theatre)
