Miles Jupp talks to Marcus Brigstocke


Hay Festival 2022, 

In Miles Jupp’s satirical, tragi-comic story about a man on the edge, Clive Hapgood is feeling stuck. The private school he teaches at is consuming his life, the gentle country life he envisaged has stifled him and left his marriage on the brink. What he needs is something to remind him and Helen what life used to be like. But when an incident at school weighs heavy on his head, his life starts to unravel. Has he got it in him to turn things around? Miles Jupp played Nigel in the sitcom Rev, and John Duggan in Armando Iannucci’s The Thick of it.
