Dear Lupin Starring James Fox
Roger Mortimer's often hilarious, sometimes touching, always generous letters to his son, Charlie, are packed with crisp anecdotes and sharp observations.
The trials and tribulations of Charlie's youth and adulthood are received by his father with both humour and resignation. Spanning twenty-five years, their correspondence forms a memoir of their relationship, an affectionate portrait of a time gone by. This new stage adaptation by best-selling author Michael Simkins uncovers many more undocumented stories of Charlie's wayward life and his family’s eccentricities. James Fox has enjoyed an extraordinary career spanning five decades, and is one of Britain's first truly international film stars due to his role in masterpieces King Rat, The Servant and Performance. His other credits include popular classic A Passage To India, The Remains Of The Day and recently Downton Abbey. Takes place at Theatre Royal Windsor 14-18 April.
