And I direc­tor Bruce Robin­son ad­mits he’s fi­nally caved in af­ter fight­ing to keep the Eight­ies cult clas­sic off the West End stage. ‘They’ve paid me a s***load of dough for the rights, so I said OK! I’m get­ting old and thought: “F*** it, go on then”,’ Bruce, 71, tells me suc­cinctly. In 2006, Bruce bat­tled to keep a pro­duc­tion star­ring Jude Law out of the West End. ‘I’ve sold the rights to George Waud,’ he adds, re­fer­ring to the hus­band of celebrity make-up artist Char­lotte Til­bury. ‘He’s a nice bloke. Ab­so­lutely loaded.’
