Courtenay Extends Run in London’s Pretending

News   Courtenay Extends Run in London’s Pretending Sir Tom Courtenay's one-man play, Pretending To Be Me, has extended its run at the Comedy Theatre.

The tribute to the late poet Philip Larkin will now run to April 26. Sir Tom vividly recalls the librarian/poet's character on a simple set of boxes and household bric-a-brac, representing the new home he moved into in the mid-seventies. Courtenay offers renditions of Larkin’s poems, including those dealing with Larkin's main fear and the source of some of his best work — the fear of death.
