Napoleon Disrobed

Napoleon DisrobedT01425189168
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 our 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.
