Edward Fox is to play John Betjeman in a new one man play called Sand In The Sandwiches exploring the life and work of the twentieth century's most treasured poet. Sand In The Sandwiches comes to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited season fresh from a sell-out UK tour.
Sand In The Sandwiches celebrates a man famous not only for laughter and light verse, but for his unfortgettable poetry, his passions and his sense of purpose. Sand In The Sandwiches presents a hugely entertaining insight into the world of Britain's Poet Laureate. Triple BAFTA winner Edward Fox brings much-loved irreverent writer Betjeman's vivacious personality and poetry to life.
Written by Hugh Whitemore and directed by Gareth Armstrong, Sand In The Sandwiches will visit Northampton before London, followed by an extended UK tour visiting Cambridge, Malvern, Woking, Brighton and Bath.
Sand In The Sandwiches will play for one week only at the Theatre Royal Haymarket during a brief break in the run of The Goat Or Who Is Sylvia?
Sand in the Sandwiches by Hugh Whitemore is directed by Gareth Armstrong with designs by BAFTA award-winning Fotini Dimou, lighting by double Olivier award-winning Howard Harrison and sound by Olivier award & Ivor Novello award nominated composer Simon Slater. Sand in the Sandwiches is produced by Jonathan Church, Oliver Mackwood Productions and Oxford Playhouse.
