The Death of Nelson by Robert Cohen

thinktanktheatre and The Methvens Studio, Methvens Bookshop, Worthing play host to Monkeydog Productions’ The Death of Nelson.

The Death of Nelson is not a biography of Britain’s favourite monocular naval hero but rather a tragicomical one-man show about people and politics; about friendship and betrayal; about love and regret; and about growing up and growing old (or not, as the case may be).

Set over 18 years between the high tide of Thatcherism and the hopeful dawn of the New Labour ‘project’, the play charts the often turbulent relationship between Richie, his godson Nelson, and Nelson’s parents – student radicals who named their son for Nelson Mandela, but whose radicalism is eroded on the long journey to government. Meanwhile, as Nelson’s parents are losing their idealism, the once apolitical Richie is busy acquiring – and trying to hold onto – some idealism of his own.

"She went up the stairs to her Dad's room, just in time to see something terrible happen. Her Dad was sitting at his desk. To his left was the wall, and there was something black on it. At first Dora thought it must be a big spider; then that her Dad must have somehow splashed ink or black paint onto the wallpaper; but then she saw that it was moving and growing bigger..."
