A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.
As ever, Henry leads the way with bold and purposeful strides. Here he re-enacts Mussolini’s ‘March on Rome’. Henry has broken ranks with historical reality and pretends that Benito actually marched himself (rather than took a car), with Jen cast in the role of General De Bono, and Ezra the vicious little Balbo.
Of course, I assumed the role of Victor Emmanuel III.
By the end of things we got a little closer to reality. Indeed, it ended in tears.
