DUE WEST, S.C. (courtesy erskine.edu) — Churchill, by British actor and playwright David Payne, will be performed Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2023, at 8:00 p.m. in Memorial Hall Auditorium on the Erskine College campus.
The play is set in 1963 at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, England, where British statesman Winston Churchill was born.
