Man of 100 Faces

After 100 years of silence under the official secrets act, the truth can finally be revealed.

This is the unbelievably true story of Sir Paul Dukes. A child runaway, concert pianist, and amateur faith healer - who became the head of MI6 in Russia, during the bloodiest year of the revolution.

This is an extraordinary story told in an extraordinary way. One performer will play 100 distinct characters, in one hour of performance.  Told through dynamic physical theatre, devised by Lecoq trained practitioners and kaleidoscopic multi-rolling, this production brings Duke’s forgotten story roaring back to life. 

It is 100 years since the end of the Russian Civil War.

It is 100 years since Dukes first published his story.

It is finally time to tell the Story of the Man of 100 Faces.
