The country is on the verge of bankruptcy and divided by a disastrous war. Parliament stinks and politicians are universally loathed. Sound familiar? This is Italy in the 1920’s.

One man has the solution.

Unfortunately for everyone involved that man is Benito Mussolini.

Trying to govern the Italian people isn’t difficult -
it’s merely pointless. Mussolini

Come and meet the devout Socialist who invented Fascism as he tries to work out where it all went wrong in this violent comedy.

Herald Angel Winner Ross Gurney-Randall returns with his third show to the Fringe festival. He is directed by Fringe First Winner Paul Hodson. The last time they worked together The Guardian said –

Gurney Randall is funny the way water is wet – naturally, inexplicably. He pulls no fast ones, he just is.

Gurney-Randall is superb. Highly charged historical content combined with powerful acting mean this is so much more than one man on stage ***** Three weeks

Follow Me 2007

Tense, frightening. Gurney-Randall takes us as close as is surely possible to the prosaic, mysterious Albert Pierrepoint as is surely possible **** The Times
