Review: Dear Lupin At The Apollo Theatre
Real life father and son James and Jack Fox star as Roger Mortimer and his son Charlie — aka the Lupin of the title — in this comedy adapted by Michael Simkins from the bestselling book, which consists of letters sent by Roger to Charlie over a period of years between 1967 and 1991 as the son and heir went increasingly off the rails.
