Description

Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show 2018! 'Absolutely phenomenal, sensitively portrayed with painstaking accuracy' (BroadwayBaby.com, 2017). Chamberlain in the run-up to his declaration of war, includes popular songs of WWII. Don't miss it. A real treat brilliantly performed. 'Leeson in the title role is absolutely brilliant. His performance showed wonderful research, particularly when Chamberlain finally recorded his speech. He sensitively depicted a man battered and broken by his mistakes, which made for a powerful portrait' **** (BroadwayBaby.com, 2017). The new perspectives on the PM in this play are invaluable. A very popular hit in 2017 and 2018.

Impressive and touching show about the PM faced with the most awful dilemma. History is written by the winners indeed: as he ruefully says, how many pubs will be named after him, as opposed to Churchill? With period songs too.

These two very talented actors produced and delivered a show that was breathtaking to watch. Excellent. Will look out for what they might bring to the festival next year.

Two brilliant actors performed this historical and interesting play. Both so good that we the audience felt we were really there, and suffering the dilemmas of Chamberlain. Can only recommend it!!

An enjoyable show, well-performed, with several live-sung songs of the time, and some interesting insights into Chamberlain the man rather than just the infamous "piece of paper" that history knows him for. A few laughs too. Well worth seeing.

The Student Newspaper (3/5 stars) 31 days ago

Although it features Chamberlain’s resentment over his failure to secure peace, Peace in our Time is a surprisingly quiet and contemplative show. Chamberlain would likely have found it undignified to get outraged, and Leeson’s writing and performance follow suit

Look for tickets... Within the cosy confines of Greenside's Emerald Theatre, standing in for a BBC studio in the autumn of 1939, the audience are regaled with the rich baritones of Colin Alexander, with the promise that the Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, will shortly be addressing the country live on...
