The Patriotic Traitor
by Jonathan Lynn

In 1945 de Gaulle had his oldest friend tried for treason. But was it as simple as it seemed?

The Patriotic Traitor is about two giants of history. It tells the extraordinary true story of Charles de Gaulle and Philippe Pétain, who loved each other like father and son but found themselves on tragically opposing sides in World War II.

Tom Conti will star as Philippe Pétain and Laurence Fox will star as Charles de Gaulle, alongside Niall Ashdown as Leon Blum / General Weygand, James Chalmers as General Le Gallet / Captain de Courcel, Ruth Gibson as Yvonne de Gaulle and Tom Mannion as Lord Halifax / Pierre Laval.
Runs from 17 Feb – 19 Mar

“The Stage One Apprentice Scheme has given me an invaluable opportunity to work in the commercial theatre sector at the highest level: experiencing and learning how to produce commercial productions in a supported environment.  Over the last year I have grown so much as a producer; nowhere else could you find such a fantastic way to develop in a practical and professional environment.  I am fortunate to now have a permanent job with Smith & Brant and look forward to continuing to learn and grow within this organisation through the support of Stage One.”
(Robyn Keynes, past Stage One Apprentice at Smith & Brant Theatricals)
