Daniel Kehlmann trans Christopher Hampton

Published by Faber & Faber

3 Male 1 Female

A perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame

Benjamin Rubin 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 writers meet in a dilapidated art-nouveau villa somewhere in the German countryside

And two massive egos are set on a collision course

Christopher Hampton's translation of The Mentor by Daniel Kehlmann premiered at the Theatre Royal Bath, April 2017
