WINNER OF "BEST INTERNATIONAL SHOW" AT THE HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL 2010.

BURTON vividly presents the life of the great Welsh actor in his own words from humble beginnings to Hollywood mega-stardom. Beautiful women (not least Liz Taylor), alcohol, wealth, stage and screen are the threads woven into this sad, happy, exuberant often hilarious one-man show. Drink was the only real anodyne to his deteriorating health and mental state, his doomed tempestuous relationship with Taylor and his constant guilt over the abandonment of his family.

RHODRI MILES, (Game of Thrones, Eastern Promises, Atlantis) takes on the role of the younger BURTON and received critical acclaim at two Edinburgh Fringe Festivals (2009/2014) and also the Hollywood fringe festival 2010 where the play won 'Best International' show.

"Fantastic, the whole audience was in the palm of his hand from beginning to end" ***** Edinburgh Guide
"Charming, Elegant one-man show which struggles to remove itself from the memory" **** The Scotsman
"Welsh actor Rhodri Miles delivers a brilliant and gripping portrait" 'Critics Choice-GO' LA Weekly*****
"Clever, concise, alcoholically tragic and furtive storytelling" LA Theatre Review*****
"A masterful performance" British theatre guide
