For three weeks at the end of 1941, just after the attack on Pearl Harbour, Winston Churchill invited himself to the White House to hold talks with President Franklin Roosevelt. He was not altogether the perfect house guest, much to the annoyance of Eleanor Roosevelt, but he and Roosevelt did fashion a joint enterprise which brought the US into World War II and saved Europe from Nazi domination as well as defeating the Japanese in the Far East. This is a commission from Holofcener Ltd to dramatise this story. Production is planned for 2023/4 and a reading took place at Jermyn Street Theatre on 2 February 2023, directed by Stephen Unwin, with the following cast:
Simon Callow, Matthew Marsh, Adrian Lukis, Jessica Turner, Guy Siner, Graham Pountney and Alexander Knox.
