Previously only available exclusively at Loudon Wainwright III's 'Surviving Twin' London shows in March 2017, Limited Edition, Deluxe Hardback 24-Page theatre programme with 18 track show CD and autographed postcard.

"Surviving Twin" is a posthumous collaboration in which Grammy Award winner Wainwright connects some of his best songs with the writing of his late father Loudon Wainwright Jr, the esteemed LIFE Magazine columnist. The performance is a game of creative catch between son and father, exploring issues like birth, loss, parenthood, fashion, pet ownership and mortality.

In March 2017, Loudon played 5 highly-acclaimed special shows at Leicester Square Theatre in London. To commemorate the residency, a limited edition, deluxe, 24 page hardback programme including an 18 track CD of show excerpts was available on the nights. The programme also contains an autographed postcard.

Loudon's illustrious career as a songwriter, humourist and actor, spans over two-dozen albums. He collaborated with Joe Henry, on the music for Judd Apatow's hit movie "Knocked Up", penned music for the British theatrical adaptation of Carl Hiaasen's novel, "Lucky You" and also recorded several songs for HBO's "Boardwalk Empire". His songs have been recorded by many including Johnny Cash, Mose Allison, Earl Scruggs, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright and Bonnie Raitt.

As an actor, he hit the screens early in his career playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the "singing surgeon", on the American television show, M*A*S*H and has subsequently appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow.
