Burton vividly presents the life of the great Welsh actor in his own words from humble beginnings to Hollywood mega-stardom. Beautiful women (not least Liz Taylor), alcohol, wealth, stage and screen are the threads woven into this sad, happy, exuberant, often hilarious one-man show.
In April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falklands Islands. Amongst those sent to the conflict was Simon Weston OBE. When RFA Sir Galahad was bombed by two Argentine planes, it would change his life forever.
For the first time, Simon takes to the stage to tell his story with no holds barred. Guiding him from that fateful day to current times is David Fitzgerald, former Sky news anchor and close friend.
'?The Ventoux is a God of Evil, to which sacrifices must be made. It never forgives weakness and extracts an unfair tribute of suffering.' Roland Barthes Lance Armstrong's sacrifice to Mont Ventoux in the 2000 Tour de France was to gift victory to his fierce rival Marco Pantani in the greatest contest the mountain and the sport had ever seen. Marco Pantani's sacrifice was his own life just five years later. Both were plagued by allegations of doping throughout their careers - now one is revered, and the other disgraced. The mystical Mont Ventoux, having claimed the mental and physical health of many professionals before them, was their legendary battlefield.
