Written and performed by Steve Bennett

The year is 1953, and nearing the end of a gruelling reading tour of North America the acclaimed British actor Charles Laughton, the star of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mutiny on the Bounty and an Academy award winner for The Private Life of Henry VIII, finds himself stranded in a Philadelphia theatre dressing room. Alone and unable to escape, he is finally forced to reflect upon his life, his career and the difficult choices he's had to make along the way.
