Dear Lupin transfers to the Apollo Theatre following UK tour

Philip Franks' production of Dear Lupin will transfer to the West End this summer, following the success of its recent tour.

Adapted for the stage by Michael Simkins, Dear Lupin will open at the Apollo Theatre on 3rd August (previews from 30th July) for a limited run until 19th September.

Father and son James Fox and Jack Fox star in this brand new stage adaptation of the best-selling Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year Dear Lupin, Letters to a Wayward Son in which renowned journalist and author Roger Mortimer’s brilliantly hilarious, often touching and always generous letters to his unruly son Charlie are now vividly brought to life.

Charlie Mortimer (aka Lupin) said: “To have Fox father and son playing Mortimer father and son is a coup beyond my wildest dreams; and to say I am excited and delighted to see the production transfer into the West End, would be the ultimate understatement. “

Jack Fox said on working with his father: “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.”
