POCKLINGTON Arts Centre is honouring Remembrance Sunday by showcasing the true story of Arthur Robinson, a missing Second World War soldier and prisoner of war.

Written and performed by his great-nephew, David William Bryan, In Loyal Company follows the story of the local packer, Arthur Robinson, who becomes a private in the 18th reconnaissance division in May 1941.

Deployed to Singapore, his ship is destroyed by Japanese dive-bombers on arrival. Arthur is declared missing.

After selling out at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this critically-acclaimed show is landing on Friday, November 8, at 7.30pm.

PAC director, Janet Farmer, said: “We have wanted to bring In Loyal Company to PAC ever since we saw it at the Edinburgh Fringe, so we are really looking forward to welcoming David William Bryan to the PAC stage.”

“As you would expect, it is powerful, emotive, quite simply a theatrical masterpiece.”

“What makes it even more poignant is it comes just ahead of Remembrance weekend, so we hope as many people as possible join us to experience this unforgettable show.”

Members of the RBL are entitled to discounted tickets to see the show. Tickets are £12 for adults and £8 for under 21s and RBL members. To book, visit pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk or phone 01759 301547.
