In Loyal Company

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

May 1941. Hitler’s bombs rain down on Liverpool. Local packer, Arthur Robinson, joins up becoming a private in the 18th reconnaissance division and deployed to Singapore where his ship is destroyed by Japanese dive bombers on arrival and Arthur is declared missing.

This extraordinary true story of survival is a one-man tour-de-force war epic.

David William Bryan trained at the Stella Adler Studio in NYC. After four years of appearing in various theatre productions, films and commercials he decided to specialise in one person plays. His first show Trashed premiered at The Underbelly, Edinburgh Fringe 2017. This year he returned with In Loyal Company at the Pleasance. He sold out thirty shows in twenty-seven days, moving to a venue twice the size to cope with demand. More information about David, video content, reviews, etc. can be found on his website.
