All Roads Lead to Rome

Chris Dobrowolski  

Chris has lovingly repaired his family Triumph Herald Estate so that he can drive it from his childhood home in Braintree to Rome via Turin where this quintessentially English car was designed.

Part investigation into his father’s time as a Polish soldier in the Italian Campaign and part muse on consumerism, All Roads Lead to Rome brings together car mechanics, a road trip, dictators and the fetishisation of possessions in a solo performance using old photos, new film and surprising mechanical objects.

A simple, effective and intellectual piece, told with warmth and a twinkle.
Fringe Review

Dobrowolski’s one man show is an hour of charismatic storytelling which invites its audience inside the Triumph Herald for a multimedia drive through his life. 
Broadway Baby

He takes us from the personal to the political, across a great swathe of 20th Century history, all without leaving the driving seat of the Triumph Herald.****
The Scotsman

This is one of the best shows I have ever seen in a theatre – and it isn't really a show… It's like someone showing you their holiday snaps - except this time you actually want to stay.
Colchester Gazette

This is live art in all its glory and a great introduction to the medium for those less familiar with it.
