How To Win Against History

Áine Flanagan Productions and Seiriol Davies

29 July 2021

Weston Studio

How to Win Against History is a hilarious, ripped-up musical about expectations, manliness, disappointment and being totally fabulous.

This is rated 5 out of 5 stars

“A work of genius”

Telegraph

The 5th Marquis of Anglesey burned brightly, briefly and transvestitely at the end of the 19th century, blowing his family’s colossal fortune on diamond frocks, lilac-dyed poodles and putting on simply amazing plays to which nobody came. After he died aged 29, his family burned every record of him, and carried on as though he'd never existed. 

How To Win Against History is a frothy, glossy costume drama about the stories we tell to convince ourselves it’s all going well, and the moments we realise it’s not.
