Napoleon Disrobed


What if Napoleon didn't die in exile? What if he swapped identities with a lowly sailor and made it back to Paris? What then?

One of the UK's most unique theatre companies creates this poignantly moving and wryly humorous re-imagining of the final years of Napoleon Bonaparte. Using their trademark comic physicality Told by an Idiot explore the absurdity of trying to retrieve time and glory. An irreverent and hugely playful show about what it is to lose immense power but gain personal freedom; to transition from one identity to another, and to lose public face.

Following their collaboration on the smash-hit My Perfect Mind ('there's nothing quite like it... wild and funny with a serious core' Times 4 stars) Paul Hunter will take the role of Napoleon under the direction of Award-winning actor and director Kathryn Hunter.
