Following a critically acclaimed run Off-Broadway, Jesse Eisenberg’s The Spoils premières at Trafalgar Studios featuring international film star Eisenberg (The Social Network) and The Big Bang Theory favourite Kunal Nayyar in their West End debuts.

The Spoils tells the story of lost soul Ben (Eisenberg). Ben is not exactly popular, even with himself. He is a bully, attacking everyone around him including his sober Nepalese immigrant roommate Kalyan (Nayyar). When Ben finds out his high school crush is engaged to a banker, he makes it his mission to demolish their relationship and have her for himself.

Jesse Eisenberg’s 2015 hit tragicomedy The Spoils is his third play and confirms him as a serious writing talent. A sharp, astute and satirical look at the millennial generation, The Spoils examines everything from stunted sexuality to the price of tea to paint the picture of a young man floundering in a multifaceted and confusing world. Agonisingly honest and brilliantly funny, the London production of The Spoils will be directed by Artistic Director of The New Group Scott Elliott.

Joining Eisenberg and Nayyar is Alfie Allen who plays Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones, celebrated stage actress Katie Brayben (Carole King in the London production of Beautiful) and American actress Annapurna Sriram.

With a star-studded cast and rave reviews, The Spoils is guaranteed to sell out fast, so be quick and book your tickets today.

All the young cast all provide really great performances with Jesse standing out as something really quite special! Best thing I've seen since Kim Noble's last show!

Not that I expected it to be bad, but I'll admit to being lured by the cast and being a bit of a theatre snob!! It was well-written and excellently performed, to the point where the quality of the acting overshadowed the actors celebrity status. The synopsis really doesn't do it justice, it is so much deeper and poignant than initially implied. The humour is quick and intelligent, beautifully balancing the performance.

The spoils was absolutely amazing! It was a very unique and exciting play which I could watch over and over again. Jesse Eisenberg is a very talented actor and writer and his co-stars were phenomenal! We got to take pictures with the cast and get autographs which was unreal! Excellent play!
