Using his experiences as re-enactor, actor, and drawing on family history, Simon has developed his monologues to illustrate how great historical events are seen from an ordinary person’s point of view.
Other monologues are in preparation and other stories can be devised set in many different time periods, to suit a client’s particular needs.

Simon is also offering to write and perform stories to suit clients needs in terms of person / location / event, to suit any client.
Although to date Simon has performed these himself, it is possible for someone else to purchase the license from Simon in order to perform the monologues themselves.
