The Ambassadors Theatre in London’s West End welcomes this compelling true story based on the well known Scottish soldier of the Victoria era Sir Hector MacDonald.
Penned by performer David Gooderson, Hector stars Steven Duffy as the decorated soldier, who lived from 1853 to 1903, alongside other performers like Gowan Calder, Stevie Hannan Raj Ghatak, Kevin Lennon and Valentine Hanson, whilst Kate Nelson directs.
Sir Hector MacDonald had a fascinating rise to the level of Major General and war hero. Born in 1853 to a crofter and leaving school in his mid teens, he rose through the ranks through his own hard work. The Battle of Omdurman proved to be a high point as his actions made him a well known hero on both sides of Hadrian’s Wall.
But he also had a fall from grace as scandal gripped his reputation and led to his suicide in 1903. He was accused of sexual activity with boys and this play explores these allegations and delves into their validity.
Writer David Gooderson is also an actor who has appeared in a wealth of classic television shows like Lovejoy, Doctor Who and A Touch Of Frost. Meanwhile, his plays include The Killing Of Mr Toad and the West End hit The Wind in the Willows.
Hector appears for one night only at the ongoing of home of Stomp in the West End – the Ambassadors Theatre. See it at the world famous venue on Wednesday 9th December 2015.
