The Boss of it All to play Soho Theatre, 2 - 27 July 2014

12 February 2014

We're delighted to announce that our critically acclaimed production of The Boss of it All by Jack McNamara, adapted from the film by Lars Von Trier, will transfer to Soho Theatre in London, Wednesday 2 - Sunday 27 July, as a result of a successful run at last year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

This severely stylish comedy is about Kristoffer, a pompous, jaded and out of work actor, asked to stand in as the head of an IT firm to take the rap for "the managements"¯ unpopular decisions. Taking his role very seriously indeed, he soon gets more than he bargained for, finding himself the target of a staff team of misfits and obsessives. Yet as he grows increasingly fond of the staff, Kristoffer is faced with a problem: will he fulfill his role and sell the company or will they prick his conscious into saving them?

Steve Marmion, Artistic Director of Soho Theatre said:

"The Boss of It All is a sharp, funny piece of work, looking at leadership, responsibility and the urge to be liked (or at least not hated). Jack and I worked together years ago and I am delighted to see the success he is having with New Perspectives - bold, theatrical and entertaining work. We are really looking forward to having the company here at Soho."

This show is part of an exciting programme of work celebrating our 40th anniversary year; we're currently touring the very first UK stage adaptation of Him with His Foot in His Mouth by Pulitzer Prize-winning American author Saul Bellow and following a successful national tour in Autumn 2013, David Rudkin's The Lovesong of Alfred J Hitchcock will open the 10th anniversary Brits Off Broadway Festival in New York!

The Boss of it All will play at Soho Theatre, London from Wednesday 2 - Sunday 27 July 2014. For tickets call Soho Theatre Box Office on 020 7478 0100 or visit
