In Loyal Company embarks on an extensive UK tour this year and makes a highly anticipated return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe following a sell-out run in 2018. Based on the incredible true story of Arthur Robinson’s experiences as a Prisoner of War during World War II, this poignant tale of survival and sacrifice is written and performed by his great-nephew David William Bryan.
A gripping and touching production, In Loyal Company is the remarkable story of a missing World War II soldier facing desperate odds. Working as a packer on the Liverpool docks in 1941, Arthur ‘Joe’ Robinson signs up as a private in the 18th Reconnaissance Division after the death of his best friend during the Blitz. The ship to his deployment in Singapore is sunk by Japanese bombers and Joe is declared missing. It’s another four years before he finally makes it home.
