About Book

Ben Brown's political thriller takes us behind the doors of Number Ten in May 1940 during three pivotal days in British History when, extraordinarily, giving in to Hitler was seriously considered.

Having urgently assembled the British war cabinet, the new Prime Minister is confronted with an intense game of political chess as he tries to persuade peace treaty supporters, including Neville Chamberlain, that Britain must not concede. Divided on whether to negotiate terms through Mussolini or escalate the battle against fascism alone, one man has to make a monumental decision, that will shape the future of the free world.

Three Days in May was presented by Bill Kenwright and first performed at Theatre Royal, Windsor, in August 2011.
