The Stirling Players
Stirling Community Theatre


Written By: Adapted by Clive Francis
Directed By: Dave Simms

Murderously funny story told by 6 actors….and a vacuum cleaner!
Jim Wormold, an under-employed vacuum cleaner salesman living in 1950s Cuba is struggling to pay for his teenage daughter’s 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 beings to recruit non-existent sub-agents, concocting a series of intricate fictions. But Wormold soon discovers that his stories are closer to the truth than he could have ever imagined.

In Clive Francis’ adaptation, Graham Greene’s classic, satirical novel, becomes a fast-moving romp, giving our cast a licence to over-act!
