This show has now finished

Dominic Allen (Belt Up Theatre's Outland) brings Thomas Paine back from the dead to tell his incredible story; the pirate who invented America, the corsetmaker that inspired the French Revolution and the ordinary man who built an extraordinary bridge. This gripping solo show takes you from Norfolk street to American battlefield, from ship to shore in a remarkable historical adventure. 'It is always sheer joy to watch Dominic Allen perform' BroadwayBaby. 'Thrillingly evokes an era of men in breeches… of the masses overthrowing their rulers…' Scotsman.
