John Mortimer's autobiographical play is the affectionate portrait of a son's relationship with his father. Growing up in the shadow of the brilliant barrister, who adored his garden and hated visitors, and whose blindness was never mentioned, the son continually yearns for his father's love and respect.
A Voyage Round My Father opened in June 2006 at the Donmar Theatre, London starring Derek Jacobi.
