The Life I Lead Tickets

London Play
Miles Jupp stars in the show about David Tomlinson in limited West End transfer!
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. The Life I Lead sees Miles Jupp, one of Britain’s leading comics and actors (Mock the Week, The News Quiz, Rev, The Durrells) bring his remarkable story to life, in a richly comic and moving tale which fills in the blanks behind a very well-known face. Following a hugely successful UK tour, The Life I Lead transfers to the West End for 8 performances only.

    This was an exquisite show, in conception, writing, and performance. I feel so fortunate to have been able to attend! Thanks to the cast and crew for one of the most meaningful theatrical events of my life.

    A friend of mine saw this when it was on tour and INSISTED I go to see it when it came to London. And boy she was right!!! Miles Jupp was magical, the writing was superb and the whole audience was taken on a roller-coaster of a ride. The standing ovation at the end was (for once!) well earned and I have never ever felt such warmth in the audience for the actor. Well done everybody

    Miles Jupp gives an award winning impersonation of the Mary Poppins actor David Tomlinson- great story, brilliantly told- Full marks to Miles and the writer.

    Miles Jupp was brilliant as David Tomlinson!

  • Review Avatar Sep 18, 2019

    David Tomlinson the quintessential English actor, star of many childhood films; Mary Poppins (Mr Banks) and Bedknobs and Broomsticks (Professor Brown) is brought vividly and brilliantly to life by Miles Jupp. The show written by James Kettle is laugh out loud funny and also heart achingly poignant. The power of the script and the performance combined makes for a truly memorable and special night at the theatre. Sadly it's on a limited run, otherwise, I would have gone back.
