Winston Churchill is one of the most enigmatic figures of the 20th Century. With the inventive mind of an engineer, he developed weaponry to break the deadlock of trench warfare in World War I. He held Britain together during its darkest hours in World War II. He published over 50 books including the definitive "History of the English Speaking Peoples" and won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Few individuals had as profound an affect on shaping the world we live in.
Edmund L. Shaff, whose resemblance to the irascible two- time British Prime Minister creates an unforgettable theatrical experience, gives a wonderful performance and a thoroughly human view of this giant of history.
The play is set in 1955 on the eve of Churchill's resignation from his second stint as British Prime Minister. In his 80's, he is uncertain that anyone can do as fine a job as he and is reluctant to let go. He ponders and relives the highlights of his life and let's us know, in no uncertain terms, that he considered himself to be right in his views, even when he wasn't.
