Leading UK theatre company Told By an Idiot is responding to the coronavirus crisis by releasing one show a week from their recorded repertoire. This week it’s one of their great successes from 2018, NAPOLEON DISROBED. And now you have an opportunity to see the show in the comfort of your own home for free.
Napoleon died in exile. But what if he didn’t?
What if he swapped identities with a lowly sailor and hot-footed it back to Paris?
On the Eurostar?
NAPOLEON DISROBED is the playful, side-splitting and endlessly inventive new show from Told by an Idiot, one of the UK’s most celebrated devised theatre companies.
Go incognito with a certain French general on his perilous journey across Europe, from dodgy hotel rooms to floundering melon enterprises. The history books are well and truly rewritten in this raucous comedy about losing immense power and rediscovering personal freedom.
Paul Hunter takes on the role of the fallen Emperor Napoleon under the direction of Kathryn Hunter in their first collaboration since their smash-hit MY PERFECT MIND.
This company faces financial difficulty like all others, so please consider making a donation or becoming a supporter to help them keep going. Please give whatever you feel able.
The show is available on demand until April 23rd.
