The Life I Lead

Jonathan Church Productions & Exeter Northcott Theatre

Thu 7 — Sat 9 Mar

at Theatre Royal

Directed by Didi Hopkins and Selina Cadell

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, Balamory) 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.
