We are pleased to bring you these great production images by Simon Annand of F Murray Abraham in Daniel Kehlmann’s comedy The Mentor which plays at Theatre Royal Bath’s Ustinov Studio until Saturday 6 May 2017.
The play stars Academy Award-winner F Murray Abraham with Daniel Weyman, Naomi Frederick and Jonathan Cullen and is directed by Ustinov Studio’s artistic director Laurence Boswell.
With a translation by leading playwright Christopher Hampton, this marks the first time a Kehlmann play has been performed outside of Germany. He previously translated Florian Zeller’s play The Father for the Ustinov Studio, launching its international success.
The original production of The Mentor in German opened in Vienna in 2014. In a dilapidated art nouveau villa, somewhere in the German countryside, two massive egos are set on a collision course in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.
