Spencer Percival has one claim to fame. He’s the only British Prime Minister to ever be assassinated. Unfortunately, no one’s ever heard of him. 205 years later, comedian Nick Hall tries to tell his story. But will he succeed?
Nick took his debut solo character show to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 and also performed in Adam Riches’ play ‘Coach Coach’ at the Pleasance Theatre and Soho Theatre. He followed this up with his one-man Cold War thriller ‘Szgrabble!’, which he debuted at the 2016 Bedford Fringe.
