Mr. Keach, who certainly concocts an uncanny physical resemblance to the man, sculpts a Hemingway that manages to lay bare the considerable flaws while retaining an edge of sympathy.

Why See Pamplona?


Stacy Keach Returns To The Role Of Ernest Hemingway

After 11 preview performances in the Spring of 2017, veteran stage and film star Stacy Keach had to bow out on opening night when he suffered a mild heart attack on stage. Given the all clear, Keach is back and fighting fit, returning to the role of Ernest Hemingway once more. A one-man tour-de-force, Pamplona sees the prolific actor reunite with the real-life-character he portrayed in the 1988 series Hemingway, a turn which garnered him a Golden Globe.

In the wake of his 1953 Pulitzer Prize and 1954 Nobel Prize for literature, Hemingway faces the pressure to create his greatest work yet. Holed up in a Spanish hotel for five years, the literary great not only struggles with deadlines, but fading health and a doomed marriage. The rival bullfighters of his latest work come to symbolise the emotional turmoil and internal battle raging within the tortured genius.
