A funny, fast-moving romp

Newick Amateur Dramatic Society’s May production will be Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene.

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!

To avoid suspicion he begins to recruit non-existent sub-agents, as well as concocting a series of intricate fictions.

But Wormold soon discovers that his stories are closer to the truth than he could have ever imagined…

Spokeswoman Barbara Bone said: “In Clive Francis’ adaptation, Graham Greene’s classic satirical novel becomes a wonderfully funny and fast-moving romp.”

Performances take place from May 8-11 at Newick Village Hall at 8pm.

Tickets for the production cost £9.
