Dear Lupin

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.

Adapted by celebrated writer and journalist, Michael Simkins (Fatty Batter, Simkins’s World), this endearing new comedy reveals fresh, undocumented stories of Charlie’s life and his relationship with his father.

Two times BAFTA Award winner James Fox, whose extensive film and TV appearances include A Passage To India, Patriot Games, The Remains of the Day and Downton Abbey, stars as Roger Mortimer.

Playing Charlie Mortimer is Jack Fox, whose television credits include Mr Selfridge, Fresh Meat and Dracula and he has recently appeared in the films Beast, Kids in Love and Theeb.

"Pure dynamite. The pair's true, father-son-bond shone through"


"With fits of laughter throughout tonight's performance, Theatre Royal Windsor was the perfect way to kick off this side-splitting sell out before it heads to London's West End."


"The actors are superb. Dear Lupin is a lovely night out. There will be tears, but most of all there will be laughter."


"Managing to persuade veteran actor James Fox to link up with one of his sons, Jack, in this utterly charming glimpse of a world fast-disappearing was an absolute master-stroke. A delightful double act."


"This magnificent production will strike a chord with all those for whom the distant echoes of parental expectation still resonate."
