Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).


Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.


However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.


The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).


Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Show details

Synopsis


Best remembered for playing Mr Banks in Disney's classic film Mary Poppins, David Tomlinson was renowned for playing the classic English gent, forthright, proper, and a loveable fool.


His meeting with Walt Disney came to encapsulate his incredible life full of adventure and heartbreak.


The man who portrayed one of cinema's most famous patriarchs was defined by his relationship with his own father - a remote eccentric, who was hiding an extraordinary tragicomic secret.


The Life I Lead sees Miles Jupp, one of Britain's leading stand-up comedians and revered actors (Mock the Week, The News Quiz, Rev, The Durrells) bring David Tomlinson's remarkable story to life.


A richly comic and moving tale of fathers and sons across the generations, The Life I Lead fills in the blanks behind a very well-known face.
