The Mentor

Vaudeville Theatre

Laurence Boswell’s critically acclaimed production of Daniel Kehlmann’s countryside comedy The Mentor charms West End audiences this summer.

Laurence Boswell’s critically acclaimed production of Daniel Kehlmann’s countryside comedy The Mentor charms West End audiences this summer.

In a dilapidated art nouveau villa, somewhere in the German countryside, two massive egos are set on a collision course: the cantankerous, once-famous writer Benjamen Rubin, and rising young literary star Martin Wegner.

When the two are brought together to develop Wegner’s new play, a perceptive and compelling comedy about art, artists and the legacy of fame ensues.

The 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.

Starring 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 Mentor 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.
