An immensely charming stage adaptation of the best-selling book, consisting of a lifetime of letters from journalist Roger Mortimer to his son Charlie. Mortimer's hilarious, touching, and generous letters are packed with crisp anecdotes and sharp observations. Spanning twenty-five years, the father/son correspondence forms a memoir of their relationship, and an affectionate portrait of a time gone by.
