Arrogant, flippant, withdrawn and with a talent for self-concealment, the mysterious Aircraftman Ross seems an odd recruit for the Royal Air Force. In fact the truth is even stranger than the man himself. Firstly, he's not officially part of the military at all, and secondly he's certainly not called Ross. Behind the false name is an enigma, who started as a civilian in the Map Office in 1914. Despite never receiving an official commission he went on to mastermind some of the most audacious military victories in the history of the British Army, including the 1916 Arab Revolt against the Turks. These victories earned him an enduring and romantic nom de guerre: Lawrence of Arabia. Terence Rattigan's 1960 play is an epic and probing drama, which reveals the unusual and deeply conflicted Englishman behind the heroic legend.Performers Joseph Fiennes (Aircraftman Ross), Michael Feast (Turkish Military Governor), Paul Freeman (General Allenby), Peter Polycarpou (Sheik Auda Abu Tayi), Navinder Bhatti (Turkish Sergeant), Jorell Coiffic-Karnall (Kerim), Ian Drysdale (Colonel Barrington), Eben Figueiredo (Rashid), Brendan Hooper (Flight Sergeant Thompson), John Hopkins (Aircraftman Dickinson/Flight Lieutenant Higgins), Nicholas Prasad (Hamed), Jay Saighal (Turkish Captain), Nick Sampson (Franks/Group Captain Wood), Peter Sandys-Clarke (Ronald Storrs), Gary Shelford (Aircraftman Parsons), Benjamin Wainwright (Flight Lieutenant Stoker), Christopher Walters (Mouth Organist), Rick Yale (Aircraftman Evans).
