'Dear Lupin' is best-selling author Michael Simkins' stage adaption of the hilarious collection of letters sent by real-life Dunkirk veteran and BBC2 racing correspondent Roger Mortimer, to his son Charlie, nicknamed Lupin after the wayward son of Mr Pooter in the Diary of a Nobody. The original Dear Lupin book became a huge best-seller and won the Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year in 2013. The play has it all; nostalgia, wit, pathos, physical humour and genuine laugh-out-loud moments. The role of Roger is especially diverse, as it is written to include a variety of brief cameos depicting characters encountered by Charlie over the years.
Roger Mortimer is played by John Barham, who has acted in over 70 stage productions in the UK, Germany, Hongkong and New Zealand, where he performs regularly as a member of Clyde Theatre Group, mainly in comedy roles.
Charlie Mortimer, Lupin, is played by John's son, Blaise Barham, who acts, directs and produces for local theatre company Remarkable Theatre, appearing most recently as 'Francis' in One Man, Two Guvnors. He also performs for Monarch and Flame Entertainment.
This play is unique as it will see John and Blaise share a stage for the first time.
Join them as they tour Dear Lupin around the Southern Lakes & Central Otago with 6 performances between 21 November and 7 December.
