This lovingly disrespectful homage to one of the classic films of all time was first performed at Òran Mór in 2010 and has since been performed in Paris, London and Barbados. Set in Morocco 1941, a Nazi infested hotbed of corruption, teeming with refugees all desperate to get hold of the all elusive exit visa and flee war torn Europe. Then one night as they they congregrate in Rick’s bar, who should walk in but the beautiful Ilsa, Rick’s long lost love…
Casablanca has some of the most iconic scenes and best lines ever written, so why not play it again? But this time in a tiny gin joint, with 3 actors playing all the parts.. and the chance to drown out the Nazis with a rousing chorus of the Marseillaise.
”Gavin Mitchell is simply outstanding as the heart broken American.. in a fabulously funny retelling of the Second World War thriller” (The Telegraph)
