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

  • Jason Byrne returns with his brand-new show, Wrecked But Ready. After 23 consecutive years Jason is wrecked but he is as ever ready (which is a battery, but he’s more Duracell than Eveready).   In particular the past year has been extremely testing for the wrecked Jason, but despite all this is he’s waiting to spill it out on stage. No one show is the same,...
