Yvonne Martin & Geoffrey Heath
Secrets are revealed, resentments released and new understandings formed in this fresh and funny perspective on an iconic and larger-than-life family.
It’s 1962 – the Beatles have their first hit, James Bond his first film – and Randolph Churchill is holding a luncheon party to celebrate the 88th birthday of his admired but estranged father. Sir Winston is a fading force and there is unfinished business in his loving but dysfunctional family.
Meanwhile, the socially inept Dr Jenkins, a newly appointed research assistant to Randolph, is pursuing his own agenda and forms a surprising bond with the wily Winston.
Winston’s Birthday is a dynamic mix of comedy and drama that will plunge you deep behind the façade of Churchill family politics during the last years of the great man’s life.
