Naomi Frederick and F Murray Abraham in The Mentor at the Vaudeville Theatre 24 June - 2 September. CREDIT Simon AnnandBenjamin Robin is a cantankerous old writer, whisky 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 Martin is given the opportunity to develop his new play under the mentorship of his idol, the two writers meet and two massive egos are set on a collision course in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.
