Details

In Loyal Company is the incredible true story of missing World War II soldier and prisoner of War Arthur Robinson, performed by his great-nephew, David William Bryan.

May 1941. Hitler’s bombs rain on Liverpool. Twenty-five-year-old local packer, Arthur Robinson, joins up becoming a private in the 18th reconnaissance division. Deployed to Singapore, his ship is destroyed by Japanese dive bombers on arrival. Arthur is declared missing. Four years later, he finally makes it home.

This extraordinary true story of survival, written by David William Bryan and Sascha Moore, is a tour-de-force war epic that shines a light on the sacrifices made by our veterans, whilst exploring themes of regret, bravery and loyalty.

In Loyal Company is the second show from LAB RATS, following their Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2017 with Trashed. LAB RATS was formed by David William Bryan and Sascha Moore after meeting at a writer’s group at the Bush Theatre, London in 2012 and was borne out of their desire to produce affordable, high quality and engaging fringe theatre which is as accessible and entertaining to first time theatregoers as it is to regular audiences and those in the industry.
