David William Bryan presents two solo plays in one night

Total Edinburgh Fringe sell out 2018 & 2019, this incredible true story of missing World War II soldier Arthur Robinson as written and performed by his great-nephew David William Bryan comes to London for one night only.

May 1941. Hitler’s bombs rain down on Liverpool. Local packer, Arthur Robinson, joins up becoming a private in the 18th reconnaissance division and deployed to Singapore where his ship is destroyed by Japanese dive bombers on arrival and Arthur is declared missing. This extraordinary true story of survival is a one-man tour-de-force war epic.

Total Edinburgh Fringe sell out 2019. This play follows the volatile youth of a twelve-year-old homeless fighter through the penal system of the Thatcher era, the rise of an ecstasy-fuelled revolution and an adult life behind bars struggling to find peace and redemption. With shades of Shakespeare, Dickens and Irvine Welsh this is a one man tour de force that will hit you like a freight train to the face (in a good way.)

Praise for David’s work…
