Sand in the Sandwiches

Oliver Mackwood, Robert Fox, Jonathan Church and Oxford Playhouse present Edward Fox in Sand in the Sandwiches for only 10 performances

A celebration of John Betjeman by Hugh Whitemore, Directed by Gareth Armstrong

Following a sell out tour, Edward Fox returns to the stage with his acclaimed portrayal of John Betjeman, poet laureate and icon of British poetry. 

Sand in the Sandwiches celebrates a man famous not only for light verse and laughter, but for his passions, his sense of purpose and his unforgettable poetry. Edward Fox stars in this joyous stage play bringing Betjeman’s poetry, sharp wit and vivacious personality to life. 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.

Double BAFTA award winner Edward Fox [OBE] is one of this country’s most eminent actors. His distinguished career counts iconic British films such as The Day of the Jackal, A Bridge Too Far, Oh! What a Lovely War, to name a few.
