Why See Dear Lupin?

ROGER MORTIMER'S AWARD-WINNING BOOK COMES TO LIFE ON STAGE

The best-selling Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year is given new life on stage in a brand-new two-hander starring real-life father and son acting duo James and Jack Fox! Based on Roger Mortimer's humourous letters to his unruly son Charlie, this touching show spans 25 years, filled with witty observations. Dear Lupin will be landing at the Apollo Theatre this July following a successful UK tour.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Roger is in despair with his mid-twenties son Charlie, who seems hellbent on wasting his life.So he decides to pen a series of letters that document their turbulent yet loving relationship, spanning the first 25 years of Charlie's life. What ensues is a brilliantly hilarious, touching and surprisingly generous memoir ode to a wayward son, and despairing father.

Twice-winning BAFTA Award recipient James Fox has appeared extensively on film and TV including A Passage To India, Patriot Games, The Remains of the Day and Downton Abbey, playing the stoic Roger, whilst Jack who has appeared in television programmes such as Mr Selfridge, Fresh Meat and Dracula, plays the errant son, Charlie. Why not treat your dad to this warm-hearted show?
