11:87 Theatre Company is going to the Brighton Fringe in May with a new play by West Mainland resident John Casey.

‘Heimatmann’ is about Georg Elser who came within minutes of assassinating Adolf Hitler and saving over sixty million souls destined to perish in WW2.

John plays Swabian Georg as an elderly, joke telling, beer swigging ghost who invites the audience to explore why he decided to stop the war by blowing up Nazis at a Munich beer hall in nineteen thirty nine.

  1. Big thumbs up to John, and Josephine, and all involved – I’m pleased to see this happening.
    The spirit of the Royal Music Nights lives on.
    And, talking of spirits – I can just see you playing that part, John!
    Breaking of legs, all round.
