Spoken Word and Talks Fri 1 April 2022

An Evening With Adrian Lukis


An entertaining and intimate In Conversation with celebrated character actor Adrian Lukis, known for playing the rakish Mr Wickham in the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, alongside Colin Firth.

Adrian will talk about his long career – from Shakespearean theatre to roles in Judy, Downton Abbey, The Crown, Black Mirror and Peak Practice – and the slow descent from the glamorous leads to recently being asked to audition for the part of “a filthy wizened old man”. Incidentally, he didn’t get the part.

Adrian will also discuss Being Mr Wickham, the play that he wrote (with Huddersfield writer Catherine Curzon) about the older Wickham looking back over his life, described by the Sunday Times as “A fine one-man show”. He may also be persuaded to tell us how he ended up naked and drunk in a jacuzzi with Colin Firth!
