The Life I Lead sees Miles Jupp, one of Britain’s leading stand-up comedians and revered actors (Mock the Week,The News Quiz, Rev, The Durrells), bring David Tomlinson’s remarkable story to life.

Best remembered for playing Mr Banks in Disney's classic film Mary Poppins, David Tomlinson was renowned for playing the classic English gent: forthright, proper, and a loveable fool. His meeting with Walt Disney came to encapsulate his incredible life full of adventure and heartbreak.

The man who portrayed one of cinema’s most famous patriarchs was designed by his relationship with his own father - a remote eccentric, who was hiding an extraordinary tragicomic secret.

A richly comic and moving tale of fathers and sons across the generations, The Life I Lead fills in the blanks behind a very well-known face.

Duration: 1 hour 45mins with interval

I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney. Live theatre has always been thrill...

    Thu 2 - Sat 4 May

    You couldn’t make it up; surely the German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn hasn’t bosched out yet another new show? And what’s he still doing here anyway? Well, his lack of transferable skills is what keeps him here and his belief that practise makes perfect is what keeps him going. This show is a much needed call to arms. Listen, everyone: stop pondering and...
