Adolf & Winston

presented by Living Spit 9 Jun 2024 - 13 Jun 2024

Two Actors. Two World Leaders. One Black Dog

Winston Churchill looks in the mirror, realises that only he can steer our great nation through its darkest hour and steels himself for the hard road ahead.

Bristol, 2023. 

Craig Edwards looks in the mirror, realises that, despite his advancing years, he stills looks good in a pair of union jack speedos and steels himself to take on the role of a lifetime.

Clevedon, 2023. 

Stu Mcloughlin looks in the mirror and realises that he’ll have to grow a little moustache.

Characteristically unafraid to tackle colossal, morally questionable subjects in an essentially inconsequential way, Craig & Stu are back walking the tightrope of taste and decency with another slice of poorly-researched history. But will either of them escape from this war alive?…

Riotous, rebellious and ridiculously rib-tickling by turns, Living Spit’s Adolf and Winston leaves other two-man comedic, musical retellings of the history of the second war in the shade, and poses the question: “who thought this was a good idea, again?”
