WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Two Halves of Guinness takes a whistle-stop tour of the life and times of Sir Alec Guinness from his first meeting with Sir John Gielgud to far away galaxies in Star Wars and back again. The play begins in the late ?70s as Star Wars is set to become one of the biggest films of all time featuring Guinness iconic performance as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Amidst fears he will be remembered only as a Jedi Knight, Sir Alec reflects on his life and career - both up to and then beyond Star Wars. The golden days of British film and theatre, of which Guinness was so vital a part, form the backdrop to the action.
