Principal’s Post – West End Success 13th April 2018

West End Success

Hazeley student Jack Nuttall has been performing in the multi award winning play The Ferryman at the Gielgud Theatre. The play is directed by Sam Mendes and written by Jez Butterworth. He is the only male actor who will complete the full West End run before the play transfers to Broadway.

The play has won many illustrious awards, the most prestigious of which was last Sunday’s Olivier Award for Best New Play and Best Director.

Jack has loved learning, working and acting alongside some of his heroes from the world of film and TV, such as:

  • Paddy Considine
  • Tom Glynn-Carney from “Dunkirk”
  • Genevieve O’Reilly from “Star Wars”
  • Saorise-Monica Jackson from “Derry Girls”
  • Sam Mendes – the director of James Bond films “Skyfall” and “Spectre”

I am certain this is just the start of a fabulous career for Jack and we will all enjoy following and supporting his progress.
