Our Man In Havana

Wed 3 – Sat 6 Nov • 7:30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Community Theatre

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.

The Deep Blue Sea

Wed 24 – Sat 27 Nov • 7:30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Community Theatre

Written by Terence Rattigan

Presented by Rondo Theatre Company

1952. Ladbroke Grove, West London.

In a dreary flat, Hester Collyer reaches breaking point. When she is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court Judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long repressed passion.

Widely regarded as Rattigan’s semi-autobiographical masterpiece, The Deep Blue Sea is a powerful and moving play of love and loss, passion and desperation set against the backdrop of post war Britain.
