Don't miss Maugham at Home at Quay Arts

You may have heard of a one-man band, but have you ever seen a one-man show?

Well, anyone who is planning on visiting the Isle of Wight next month will have the chance to, as reputable British actor Anthony Smee is bringing the story of W Somerset Maugham to the stage at Quay Arts in Newport Harbour, with Antony Curtis' production Maugham at Home.

Maugham was one of the most popular playwrights and novelists of the 1930s, but his early life was troubled and his adulthood filled with money, prostitutes, celebrities and royalty.

Through Smee, who has appeared in major films like The English Patient and Return of the Jedi, we learn how Maugham was shaped by his grief-stricken childhood, student days in Heidelberg, his journey as a doctor with the Red Cross and later as a struggling writer and international spy.

Tickets to Maugham at Home - which is taking place on October 19th and 20th - cost £11 in advance and £13 on the door, and the show starts at 8pm.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801636773-ADNFCR
