Our Man In Havana
The Norwich Players present Chips with Everything by Arnold Wesker.
The Cold War. An RAF training base. A group of new conscripts begin eight weeks of ‘square-bashing’. In this macho world they will be drilled into a well-oiled machine able to resist the enemy within. Yet behind the parade ground veneer prejudice runs deep and the system projects its own. When a dangerous friendship between two young recruits – Pip, an idealistic young aristocrat and Chas, a working-class boy – offers hope of rebellion, the establishment unleashes its calculated revenge.
A twenty-strong cast of women will portray this world of male power in a radical new take on Wesker’s 1962 compelling classic, shedding new light on age-old prejudices.
An amateur production by arrangement with Samuel French.
