One of Knightmare's original cast members is reprising his acclaimed role as Ernest Hemingway.

Death of a Hunter is being performed at Brighton's Warren Theatre from 3-12 May, as part of the Brighton Fringe. Originally written in German by Rolf Hochhuth, this one-man play follows the last hour of American author Ernest Hemingway's life.

'Unable to write anymore, Ernest Hemingway fights his last and loneliest battle as he tries to find the courage to commit suicide. He confronts his demons, questions old certainties and comes face to face with the ghosts of his past...'

It was performed for the first time in English at London's Finborough Theatre last April by Edmund Dehn. We know him from Knightmare Series 1 and 2, where he played Gumboil the guard, Igneous the wall monster, the Giant and the Automatum.

Edmund Dehn's return to the role promises another excellent run, going by last year's reviews:

'Powerful fare which Dehn delivers with aplomb ... a virtuoso performance' Close-up Culture

'The subject matter could easily have led to a performance of unremitting gloom, but thanks to the dynamic direction of Anthony Shrubsall and the luminous performance of Dehn, it is riveting and ultimately uplifting' ICN

'The actor couldn't be a better fit for the character: from his looks to his walk, he is one with the writer himself.' BWW

'Edmund Dehn is transfixing as Hemingway; he plays him with a great weightiness that leaves the audience hanging on every word' The Upcoming
