Dwb slider 960x396

Two one-act plays at East Riding Theatre to stir the emotions.

David William Bryan presents two plays tonight and tomorrow (6th and 7th September) which will amaze and move you. He returns to ERT to perform back -to- back smash-hit one-man plays in one night - ‘In Loyal Company’ & ‘Fragility of Man’

In Loyal Company is the incredible true story of missing World War II soldier and prisoner of War Arthur Robinson, written and performed by his great-nephew, David William Bryan.
May 1941. Arthur Robinson joins up becoming a private in the 18th reconnaissance division. Deployed to Singapore, his ship is destroyed by Japanese dive bombers on arrival. Arthur is declared missing. This extraordinary true story of survival is a tour-de-force war epic.

After a short interval, David will perform Fragility of Man, his brand new hard-hitting original play following one man’s epic life-long battle with the justice system. Not suitable for under 16.

Tickets £14-15
