Join us for a staged reading of Wonderdrug, a brand new feature screenplay by BAFTA nominated writer Raphael Smith and Jamie Kutner. Wonderdrug tells the story of 24 year old Miles Mendelsohn, scientific genius and chronic nebbish, who invents a drug that cures almost anything and becomes a controversial folk hero.
Smith’s previous work includes Sidney Turtlebaum, which starred Derek Jacobi and was shortlisted for an Academy Award in the Best Live Action Short Film category. Writer and journalist Jamie Kutner, had just completed his solo screenplay A Lad Insane when he was introduced to Smith and the pair embarked on Wonderdrug together.
The reading is hosted as a joint partnership event between UK Jewish Film Festival and Theatre Arts at London Metropolitan University.
