David William Bryan 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.
