New show is something to write home about

A FATHER and son team will be staring in a brand new stage adaptation of the best-selling Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year ‘Dear Lupin, Letters to a Wayward Son’.

The production tells the tale of renowned journalist and author Roger Mortimer’s brilliantly hilarious, often touching and always generous letters to his unruly son Charlie.

The show has been adapted by celebrated writer and journalist Michael Simkins and is an endearing new comedy which reveals fresh, previously unknown stories of Charlie’s life and his relationship with his father.

Father and son James Fox and Jack Fox will be appearing at Malvern Theatres to put on shows to remember from Monday (May 11) to Saturday (May 26) as part of a six week tour prior to a West End run.

Charlie Mortimer said: “To have Fox father and son playing Mortimer father and son is a coup beyond my wildest dreams.”

Jack Fox said: “It’s brilliant to see dad return to the stage and for me not just as his son but as an actor it’s a huge privilege to learn from him.

“People assume as an actor you start as a fully finished article, but that couldn’t be further from the truth – it’s an honour to work with him.

“I hope the rapport we share in life will translate to the stage.”

The show will start at 7.30pm in the evening at 2.30pm on the Wednesday and Saturday.

Tickets will be between £18.48 and £29.68.
