Starring Father and son acting team James and Jack Fox, Dear Lupin opens at the Apollo Theatre in July 2015. It's a specially adapted stage production of the best-selling book, the Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year winner Dear Lupin, Letters to a Wayward Son. What's the story? When Charlie Mortimer left home his father, the respected author and journalist Roger Mortimer, starts writing him letters. Their correspondence lasted a quarter of a century and this wonderful comedy brings their relationship to sparkling, hilarious life.
The book was an instant best-seller. And it attracted rave reviews. As the Daily Mail said, "By turns, affectionate, touching and wry, Dear Lupin brims with a father's love for his son. An absolute delight." Jeremy Paxman said it's so brilliantly written they could offer a money-back guarantee if you don't laugh. And now it's in the capital for your delectation, following a smash hit UK tour. The style has been compared to great humorous English writers like PG Wodehouse, Evelyn Waugh and Bill Bryson, a strong dose of British funnies that'll have you rocking with laughter. Great fun, not to be missed, and by all accounts the real-life relationship between the actors enriches an already remarkable production even further.
