The Professor of Adventure
This production ended on 05/04/2016
He smelt like a mountain goat, chain-smoked Woodbines and lived in a cave. Millican Dalton was a mountain guide, philosopher and self-proclaimed inventor of shorts. Leaving his stifling city job, Millican dropped out before it became fashionable and set out to seek romance and freedom living amongst nature in cabins, tents and caves for the next fifty years of his life.
It’s 1941 and Millican is in ‘the safest spot to escape the kind attentions of Mr Hitler’ - his cave in Borrowdale. But the Keswick ARP warden has just ordered him to “put that candle out” and the Borrowdale Hermit is far from happy...
Meet this true English eccentric, the self-styled Professor of Adventure, in a one man show celebrating his unique outlook on life, his philosophy and his continuing quest for freedom.
