17TH – 21ST JULY

OUR MAN IN HAVANA

By Graham Greene, adapted by Clive Francis


Jim Wormold, an under-employed vacuum cleaner salesman living in 1950s Cuba, is struggling to pay for his teenage daughter’s increasingly extravagant lifestyle. So when the British Secret Service asks him to become ‘their man in Havana’ he can’t afford to say no. There’s just one problem: he doesn’t know anything about spying! To avoid suspicion he recruits non-existent sub-agents, concocting ever more elaborate fictional scenarios. But Wormold soon discovers that his stories are closer to the truth than he could have ever possibly have imagined. A slick, comically dark romp with four actors and a thousand characters. If you liked Patrick Marlowe’s production of “39 Steps”, you’ll want to return to see what he does with Graham Greene’s classic.
