Country Players rounds off a successful year with another great show - Our Man in Havana from the classic novel written by the British author Graham Greene.
The play is set in Cuba during the Cold War Era of the 1950’s. Greene, in a delightful and satirical way, uses the novel to mock intelligence services, especially the British MI6 and their willingness to believe reports from their local informants.
Greene was himself a member of MI6 and his background allowed him to portray both accurately and comically the behind-the-scenes espionage antics that make up much of the novel’s plot.
‘This is a comedy-thriller that will have you laughing out loud often, and shaking your head, because Mr. Wormold’s predicaments become completely absurd.’ Review from Literary Hoarders
