About the Book

It's the legendary hot summer of 1959 and while the Cold War rages and America tunes into I Love Lucy, Captain Jack Fox - believed missing in action in the fields of France fifteen years before - is about to be reunited with his family in the Hamptons.

But is this really Jack Fox? And if it isn't, who is this man? And why are there twenty-two other families so intent on claiming him as their own?

A sparkling comedy of identity, lost and found, based on Jean Anouilh's hit 1937 play, Le Voyageur sans bagage, Anthony Weigh's Welcome Home, Captain Fox! premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in February 2016.

“This almost farcical fantasy somehow combines Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? With Oscar Wilde-ish self-creation and the feel good factor of It's A Wonderful Life. Thoughtful fun.”
- Daily Mail
“Witty, colourful.”
