Water

Date: 4 Oct 2019

This is the true story of Carl Hans Lody – the worst spy ever.

With a kiss from the Kaiser, a stolen passport and a severe lack of training, Lody was shipped to Britain in1914 to start an ill-fated career as a German spy.

His capture and execution took just a few months but despite all the drama … everyone rather liked him. His countrymen, his captors – even his executioners.

Water is an affectionate story, told with humour, of a man who is always in the wrong place at precisely the right time.

Written, directed and featuring Mark Langham, this production also stars Stephen Lloyd-Coombs, Tristan Black and Lib Campbell.
