Following a sold out tour, double BAFTA Award-winner Edward Fox (The Day of the Jackal, A Bridge Too Far) returns to the stage with his acclaimed portrayal of John Betjeman, poet laureate and icon of British poetry. Sand in the Sandwiches at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket celebrates a man famous not only for light verse and laughter, but for his passions, his sense of purpose and his unforgettable poetry.
Embracing his delight for nostalgia and delicious irreverence, Sand in the Sandwiches travels through Betjeman’s boyhood and adolescence, to life as Britain’s poet laureate, presenting a hugely entertaining insight into the world of this much-loved poet.
