Like father, like son
Roger Mortimer's hilarious, touching and generous letters to his son Charlie span a 25-year period. Their correspondence forms a memoir of their relationship, an affectionate portrait of a time gone by, packed with crisp anecdotes, sharp observations and universal insights. Adapted for the stage by best-selling author Michael Simkins, the play is provided an added dimension of authenticity by the performances of real-life father and son James and Jack Fox. Portraying the trials and tribulations of childhood, adulthood, parenthood – life – in a way that all can relate to, this is a stage performance that will leave the stiffest of audiences dewy-eyed. Named for the Greek god of the arts and leader of the muses, because it was designed and built as a venue for musical entertainment, The Apollo Theatre first opened its doors in February 1901. Located on Shaftesbury Avenue, it is one of the most striking buildings of the West End's fleet. "By turns, affectionate, touching and wry, Dear Lupin brims with a father's love for his son.
