It’s 1899 and escaped prisoner of war Winston Churchill is a fiendish spot of bother, lost in the African savannah, wanted ‘Dead or Alive’ and hounded by the scathing words of his dead father. Will he surrender, or fight on – whatever the cost?

Experience the coming-of-age of Britain’s greatest hero in this gripping true story of adventure, audacity and Imperial folly.

The show will be followed by a presentation from writer/performer Freddie Machin on the letters, photographs and archive material that inspired the show’s creation.

“A gem of new writing”– Three Weeks

“Consistently entertaining and often hilarious” – Exuent Magazine

“Freddie Machin gives a superb performance as Churchill” – Hairline
