Spencer Percival has one claim to fame; he’s the only Prime Minister ever to be assassinated. Unfortunately no one’s ever heard of him. 205 years later, Nick Hall tells his story at the Reading Fringe.
In this inventive and hilarious journey through history, Nick brings alive the world of the 19th century, while drawing parallels with the present. In this discordant age of Brexit, Donald Trump, Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May, could we still learn something from the past?
As seen on BBC Two, BBC Three, and BBC Radio 4. ‘Brilliant’ (Times). ‘Side splittingly funny’ ***** (ThreeWeeks). ‘Crackingly original’ **** (List). ‘One not to miss’ **** (Skinny).
