The Lion & The Unicorn

FRIDAY 18th OCTOBER 7.30pm

On the evening of 13th October 1939, six weeks after war has been declared on Hitler’s Germany, Winston & Clementine Churchill meet with Neville & Anne Chamberlain, for a private dinner.

Prime Minister Chamberlain has seen all his efforts to negotiate peace with Hitler shattered, whilst Churchill has been recalled to the cabinet, his dire warnings of the Nazi threat vindicated.

History tells us this was the only time the four ever met alone together socially, and there is no official record as to what transpired during that unique evening…

From the pen of Robin Hawdon (God and Stephen Hawking, A Night In Provence), this compelling new play is by turns epic and intimate, dramatic and moving, and never less than enthralling throughout as it asks the question, how far should one go to pacify a threatening dictator?

Presented as a radio-play-live-on-stage with sound effects and a cast of seasoned performers, you will be transported back to wartime London as Crime And Comedy Theatre Company bring to life the first ever production of this fascinating new drama.
