Successful author Esther Freud, author of Hideous Kinky and Love Falls comes to The Watermill Theatre with her dazzling new novel Lucky Break. It follows a group of young actors as they grapple with haphazard tours, illogical auditions, unobtainable agents, deluxe caravans, rocky relationships and red-carpet premieres. Their world reveals ruthless ambition, uncertain alliances and the many-sided holy grail of Success.

"Lucky Break is full of these pitch-perfect observations, spiced with wry humour. It is also a terrifically absorbing book." The Observer

"Freud marinates her tale with wit, warmth and the sense of extended family: the real love at the heart of luvviedom." Financial Times

I loved Lucky Break – being taken away and plunged into that vivid group of actors with all their fun and excitement – and of course their tensions, disappointments and anxiety too. It struck me as completely authentic and enthralling" Michael Holroyd

Esther Freud was named as one of the 20 'Best of Young British Novelists', alongside Alan Hollingsworth Hanif Kureishi and Kazuo Ishiguru by Granta magazine.
