PlayBlog Watch the Promo for West End's Cool Hand Luke, Starring Marc Warren (Video) Marc Warren (West End's The Rise and Fall of Little Voice) will star in Cool Hand Luke, a new stage adaptation of Donn Pearce’s 1965 novel of the same name, beginning Sept. 23 at the West End's Aldwych Theatre, prior to an official opening Oct. 3.

Warren will play Luke Jackson—the role created on screen by Paul Newman in the 1967 film adaptation of Pearce's novel—who becomes a symbol of hope for his fellow inmates at a Florida prison camp.

Cool Hand Luke, according to press notes, "is the hard-hitting story of a World War II veteran turned convict and rebel, whose unquenchable spirit and refusal to be broken by the system becomes part of his fellow convicts' mythology of survival. After a spell in a Florida prison camp where the conditions were brutal and included hard physical labor on the chain gang, Cool Hand Luke is a gripping and rousing theatrical experience that climaxes with the ultimate showdown between the system and the human spirit it seeks to control."
