Chamberlain... Peace in Our Time
  • Edinburgh Fringe

'Leeson in the title role is absolutely phenomenal. His performance showed painstaking accuracy and research, particularly when Chamberlain finally recorded his speech. He sensitively depicted a man battered and broken by his mistakes, which made for a powerful portrait.' **** (, 2017). Returning for just five performances due to popular demand. The play is set in Downing Street during the dramatic hour leading up to Chamberlain's declaration of war. Popular WWII songs of the day are cleverly interspersed throughout. A cutting and relevant political drama and a must-see production for 2018.
