Milligan’s war memoirs on Playhouse stage
The comedian’s war memoirs are brought to anarchic life, told through a fusion of comedy, jazz, song and dance.
Through the proceedings of World War Two, the story charts Gunner Milligan’s progress from joining the Royal Artillery through the North African and Italian campaigns. High comedy and tragedy collide, as the audience follow him and his ad hoc jazz quartet – complete with their famed comedy routines – adrift on the tide of great historic events.
A cast of actor and musicians includes Sholto Morgan (as Milligan), Dominic Gerrard, playing Milligan’s soul mate Harry “Duke” Edgington, with support from Matt Devereaux, William Findley, David Morley Hale.
Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall opens at the Liverpool Playhouse on Monday 9 November and runs until Saturday 14 November. Tickets are priced £9.50-£20. Call the box office on 0151 709 4776.
