Review this show


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 comics and actors (Mock the Week, The News Quiz, Rev, The Durrells) 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.

Critic reviews

Watching Jupp is a joy as he explores every crack and crevice of Tomlinson's psyche

· Broadway World

A superbly captivating piece of theatre

· Theatre Weekly

Comic Miles Jupp leads this very likeable drama about ‘Mary Poppins’ actor David Tomlinson

· Time Out

A one-man show is not easy to pull off, but Miles Jupp performs superbly

· The Upcoming

I suspect it will make its intended audience very happy indeed
