Important information:

This show contains strong language and scenes of war.

After a total sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run in 2018, In Loyal Company returns in a venue twice the size for 2019. This incredible true story of missing WWII soldier Arthur Robinson, written and performed by his great-nephew David William Bryan, is a tour-de-force war epic not to be missed.

'A tour de force' (Scotsman).
