Benjamin Robin is a cantankerous old writer, whiskey aficionado and pedant, still basking in the reflected glory of long-ago success.

Martin Wegner is a rising young literary star, heralded as "The voice of his generation'. When Martin is given the opportunity to develop his new play under the mentorship of his idol, the two writers meet and two massive egos are set on a collision course in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.

Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Nica Burns have announced that Laurence Boswell's critically acclaimed production of Daniel Kehlmann's The Mentor will have a West End run at London's Vaudeville Theatre.

The Mentor stars Academy Award-winner F. Murray Abraham as Benjamin Rubin, Daniel Weyman as Martin Wegner, Naomi Frederick as Gina Wegner and Jonathan Cullen as Erwin Rudicek. The play is directed by Olivier Award-winning Laurence Boswell who resides as Artistic Director of Theatre Royal Bath's Ustinov Studio where the play celebrated a record-breaking run earlier this year, the most successful in the studio's history. This production, translated by Academy Award-winning Christopher Hampton, marks the first time that bestselling author Daniel Kehlmann's play has been performed outside of Germany.

F. Murray Abraham won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as Salieri in Milos Forman's masterpiece Amadeus. His numerous other screen credits include Homeland, Mighty Aphrodite, Scarface, Finding Forrester, Star Trek: Insurrection, The Name of the Rose, The Good Wife, Inside Llewyn Davis and The Grand Budapest Hotel. Theatre credits include It's Only A Play, Othello, Richard III and Uncle Vanya, for which he was awarded an Obie Award for Best Actor.
