Jesse Eisenberg to make West End debut with his own play

Actor Jesse Eisenberg is bringing his play The Spoils to London.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star will make his West End debut in May (16) when the off-Broadway production transfers to Trafalgar Studios in England.


The Spoils, which Eisenberg wrote and starred in last year (15), is a cutting comedic take on millennial privilege, centring on odd-couple roommates in New York City.


Eisenberg will reprise his role as a narcissistic wannabe film director for the London production, while The Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar will also return as a Nepalese business school student.


The Spoils will run from 27 May to 13 August (16) in London.


This is Jesse's third produced play - he also penned Asuncion and The Revisionist, which is currently enjoying a premiere run at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.
