Join Robert Powell and Liza Goddard for a celebration of English Eccentrics as they introduce colourful and remarkable characters who have enlivened and entertained us through the ages, and whose originality and strength of character stands out now more than ever in an age of mass-market conformity. Robert and Liza bring you Joshua Norton, self-proclaimed Emperor of the United States of America; William Cope, the ?Green Man' of Brighton; William Buckland, who ate anything and everything from a bluebottle to the heart of King Louis XIV; and many equally odd and endearing characters. Also featured are familiar names including Lewis Carroll, Dr. Samuel Johnson, Sir Thomas Beecham, Lord Byron, Beau Brummell, Dr. William Spooner, and Oscar Wilde.Performers Robert Powell, Liza Goddard.
