The Standard Bearer preceeded by Keats, Shelley, Ghosts and Lovers


preceeded by Keats, Shelley, Ghosts and Lovers

Stephen Wyatt / Julian Sands


Julian Sands and Neil Dickson have partnered up to present The Standard Bearer, a moving and funny one man, 50-minute play written by Stephen Wyatt about a Shakespearean actor on tour in West Africa. Sands directs and Dickson stars. The performance is preceeded by a solo by Julian Sands himself.


The Standard Bearer will be preceeded by Keats, Shelley, Ghosts and Lovers where Julian Sands is performing an actor who finds both fulfillment and redemption through the performance of Shakespeare as he struggles to make sense of his life.


Julian Sands presented last season at the TNL A Celebration of Harold Pinter, directed by John Malkovich. Neil Dickson played the role of Harold Ford in the television series Mad Men. His film work includes Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies, David Lynch’s Inland Empire, cult classic Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion and the BAFTA award winning film Chasing Chekhov. Playwright Stephen Wyatt has worked widely in England in theatre, radio and television, and his play Memorials to the Missing won radio and theatre awards.


The Sands/Dickson team premiered The Standard Bearer first in London 2011 to sold-out audiences and then continued a critically acclaimed run in Los Angeles.


Truly an outstanding performance… I have never had a wash of so many emotions in 50 minutes. Robert Kovacik, NBC Los Angeles
