Written by Graham Greene & Adapted by Clive Francis
Presented by Playing Up Theatre Company
Wormold, a hapless Hoover salesman for Phastcleaners, is unwittingly recruited by the British secret service. Having nothing of genuine interest to report, he invents agents and situations (submitting diagrams copied from vacuum cleaner manuals) to boost his expenses account, but finds that fiction is strangely hijacked by reality.
Clive Francis’ stage adaptation turns Greene’s novel into a fast-moving, four-handed farce that, like Patrick Barlow’s 39 Steps, features three actors who play a bewildering number of agents, nuns, brothel madams and a sadistic chief of police.
