Award Winning Actor: Winston On The Run

Award Winning Actor: Winston On The Run

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.

Followed by a presentation and Q&A session from writer/performer Freddie Machin on the letters, photographs and archive material that inspired the show's creation.

***** Three Weeks "A gem of new writing"
**** Exuent Magazine "Consistently entertaining and often hilarious"
**** Fringe Review "A terrific piece of theatre"
**** Hairline "Freddie Machin gives a superb performance as Churchill"

Winner - BEST ACTOR at the 2012 Buxton Fringe (also nominated for Best Production and Best New Writing)
