Fresh from a UK Tour, Edward Fox returns to the West End in the celebrated one-man play exploring the life and work of John Betjeman, Sand In The Sandwiches, for a strictly limited London run.
John Betjeman was the nation’s favourite poet, with Sand In The Sandwiches celebrating a man famous not only for light verse and laughter, but for his passions, his sense of purpose and his unforgettable poetry.
Through boyhood, his adolescence, to life as Britain’s Poet Laureate, the new one-man play presents a hugely entertaining insight into the world of this much-loved irreverent writer, as triple BAFTA Award winner Edward Fox brings Betjeman’s poetry and vivacious personality to life. A journey through memory and verse, the play collates the work of the twentieth century’s most treasured poet.
Written by Hugh Whitemore and directed by Gareth Armstrong, the show receives its London premiere at Theatre Royal Haymarket between May 30th and June 3rd 2017.
