Competition: Win tickets to see F Murray Abraham in The Mentor at the Vaudeville Theatre

by -

Academy award winner, Hollywood legend and star of hit TV series Homeland, F Murray Abraham plays Benjamin Rubin, 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 the two of them meet, two huge egos clash in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.
