Pretending to be Me
Mon 3 Feb 2003
Starring Sir Tom Courtenay, Pretending to be Me is an intimate, acerbic, and moving tribute to poet, jazz aficianado and Hull University Librarian, Philip Larkin. A 50% discount on tickets is being offered to NAWE members until 21 February 2003.
Larkin has moved home; surrounded by packing cases. Playing selections from his favourite jazz LPs, he reflects on his writing and his life in a wicked manner that is both hilarious and moving. Courtenay seamlessly shifts between Larkin's outrageous wit and the poems; which he plays with directness and simplicty. Experience a day-in-the-life of this great English poet.

Showing from 12 February 2003 at the Comedty Theatre, Panton Street, London SW1.

'I saw the first run at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and it was absolutely brilliant.' - Paul Munden
