What Rupert is up to…
- appearing in the West End production of Dear Evan Hansen, as Larry Murphy, Zoe and Connor’s dad. Golly gosh! This is at the Noel Coward Theatre with previews from 29 October 2019, opening on 19 November, with tickets currently selling through to April 2020. More info: official website and tickets; Evening Standard article; Twitter; WhatsOnStage article.
- proud that his brother Justin Young co-wrote four episodes of the recent TV series Sanditon (2019), Andrew Davies’ adaptation of Jane Austen’s unfinished novel. Confusingly, there are two Justin Youngs listed as writers, but Rupert’s brother is the one who wrote episodes 3, 4, 6 and 7.
- appearing as Marcus in the film The Secret Garden, with Colin Firth as Lord Archibald Craven and Julie Walters as Mrs Medlock. Discovered via Rupert’s page at his agency! IMDB page for the film. No news on release dates yet, though Rupert indicated it would be late 2019. update: IMDB lists it as being released in April 2020.
