By Will Adamsdale
Will Adamsdale’s Jackson’s Way won the Perrier Award for Comedy in 2004. Part theatre, part comedy, it was a modern-day parody of American motivational speakers and a satire on the world of self-help and corporate jargon.
Jackson’s Way: Level 2 was a BAC Scratch Commission, and was also commissioned by the Corn Exchange in Newbury. It marked the return to the stage of Chris John Jackson, the writer of ‘Maximum Jackson’ following the huge success of Jackson’s Way. It led us to look again with Will at the original production of Jackson’s Way.
"This show is more than comedy. It plays with your intellect as well as your sense of humour… Jackson’s Way is simply the best, funniest, cleverest miracle of make believe."
"The show is an intense and impressive performance with an appropriate hint of American TV evangelism."
