De Roger Mortimer & Charlie Mortimer Adaptation de Michael Simkins

Résumé: Roger Mortimer's often hilarious, sometimes touching, always generous letters to his son, Charlie, are packed with crisp anecdotes and sharp observations. The trials and tribulations of Charlie's youth and adulthood are received by his father with both humour and resignation. Spanning twenty-five years, their correspondence forms a memoir of their relationship, an affectionate portrait of a time gone by.

Presse : "My misgivings evaporated, though, as the evening mellowed, and the salt taste of harsher experience strengthened the tepid concoction." Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph

"It was, however, only in the play’s dying moments, as Mortimer faces the debilities of old age, that I felt I got a glimpse of the character’s humanity. Jack Fox, meanwhile, touchingly shows how Charlie’s carefree hedonism turns into filial love." Michael Billington for The Guardian

" the piece feels alienatingly cosy and complacent, except for those touching moments near the end where the son recognises the depth and steadiness of his dying father's undemonstrative love." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"Philip Franks’s loving production captures well this subtle mood of a very English understatement and Fox senior’s customary suave detachment is a fine match for Roger’s tone." Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard
