Lent Week 2
Dear Lupin is the stage adaptation of the comic, caustic, and charming collection of letters sent by racing journalist Roger Mortimer to his wayward son, Charlie - nicknamed Lupin - spanning two and a half decades of their lives.
The play follows both their stories as Charlie, an Eton dropout, embarks on an array of jobs and years of “drunken hedonism” whilst Roger, a renowned horse racing correspondent, tries to keep his son on the straight-and-narrow.
This is a touching portrait of nostalgia, joy, and regret that delves into addiction, bereavement, and the time-worn yet unbreakable bond between a father and his son.
