The Mentor starring F. Murray Abraham is opening at the Vaudeville theatre this summer!
Benjamin Robin is a cantankerous old writer, whiskey aficionado and pedant, still basking in the reflected glory of long-ago success. Martin Wegner is a rising young literary star, heralded as “The voice of his generation”. When Martin is given the opportunity to develop his new play under the mentorship of his idol, the two writers meet and two massive egos are set on a collision course in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.
Further cast includes Daniel Weyman, Naomi Frederick, Jonathan Cullen and the play will be directed by Laurence Boswell.
