A solo show where Churchill discusses his failures and his successes; his love of art, liquor and women; and the bravery of Britain's finest hour. More…
It is March 1946. In the past year, the influential Nobel Prize laureate Winston Churchill has led Britain and the Allies to victory in the European Theatre of World War II. He has also shockingly been defeated for re-election as Prime Minister. Sitting in forced retirement with his wife Clementine at their Chartwell home, Churchill receives an invitation from President Harry Truman to speak in the States, at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, where he will deliver his legendary, emphatic “Iron Curtain” speech. He arrives in Fulton to an informal and esoteric gathering of friends and supporters, and shares his life in flashback and through storytelling.
See it if you like biographical one-man shows. I enjoyed spending time w/ WC, altho some parts dragged. The acting was solid, but not dazzling.
Don't see it if you're uninterested in Churchill's story or British history. This traditional play isn't super-exciting, but it is enjoyable and edifying.
See it if you are into biographies. One man-show. It is interesting and informative.
Don't see it if historical slow paced show. Some of the characters and plots are better understood with some knowledge of British history.
See it if You really enjoy British/WWII history, and want a first-person history lesson from Winston Churchill complete with witticisms.
Don't see it if You're expecting a show with plot and stuff; this is literally just Churchill talking at you the entire time.
See it if you enjoy good oratory and speeches. This is a one man show and if you've an interest in Churchill you'll find this appealing
Don't see it if you're expecting a dynamic production, this is very traditionally monologue
See it if History or His-story is your jam. A great performance.
Don't see it if the man, the legend, the politics, or the famous one-liners do not interest you. Its a one man show, so its all Churchill.
