Winston On The Run
A one-man play about Winston Churchill's little known early life comes to Frome's Merlin Theatre on Wednesday.
Created by London-based company, Fol Espoir, Winston on the Run tells the story of Churchill's war-time experiences in South Africa, and his astonishing escape across hundreds of miles of savannah to rejoin British lines.
It's 1899 and escaped prisoner-of-war Winston Churchill is in 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.
