Throwing audiences back to the scorching summer of 1959, at the peak of Cold War tensions, Welcome Home, Captain Fox! tells a comic tale of identity lost and found.
Set on the very tip of Long Island in the midst of a legendarily hot summer, Captain Jack Fox, hitherto deemed lost to the battlefields of France 15 years beforehand, returns from his missing in action status.
On the brink of being reunited with his family in the Hamptons, he suddenly finds himself claimed – by 22 other families. Can this really be Captain Jack Fox?
Updating Jean Anouilh’s 1937 hit play Le Voyageur Sans Bagage, playwright Anthony Weigh, along with a cast starring Francesca Annis, Fenella Woolgar and Katherine Kingsley, transports this sparkling, riotous family drama to late 1950s America at the Donmar Warehouse.
