        Pretending To Be Me

Pretending To Be Me

Sir Tom Courtenay presents his own Dramatisation of Philip Larkin, distinguished twentieth century poet and University of Hull Librarian. Created from Larkins own words, Courtenay blends material from his letters and articles, exploring both his award-winning poetry and prose, to reflect on Larkins life. Larkin was one of the great masters of the english language and Pretending To Be Me considers his life and his unflagging obsession with being a writer, through sharp wit and skilful lyricism. This is a truly entertaining and heartfelt performance not to be missed!

from the writing of Philip Larkin; After An idea by Michael Godley
