Pamplona Has Been cancelled Due
Stacy Keach once again takes on the role of the mighty Ernest Hemingway in this world premiere play. Directed by Tony winner Robert Falls, Pamplona takes place two years before Hemingway committed suicide, and finds the literary giant plagued by health problems and memories of his past glories as he struggles to finish his new novel. Keach previously portrayed the writer in the 1988 miniseries Hemingway, a performance which garnered the actor an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination. Pamplona marks the third time that Keach and Falls have collaborated at the Goodman, after Finishing the Picture and King Lear.
What is Pamplona About?
The year is 1959, and world famous author Ernest Hemingway is ensconced in a sweaty hotel room in Pamplona, Spain, struggling to finish his new novel. Heralded as the greatest writer alive, and with a Pulitzer and Nobel Prize to his name, he's now wracked with despair. His inspiration seems to have deserted him and the fog of depression is growing ever darker. With a deadline looming, he must break out of his funk and rediscover his old magic.
