Our Man In Havana

Formby Little Theatre present Our Man In Havan, adapted by Clive Francis from the novel by Graham Greene.

Directed by Ian Bryden

Jim Wormold, an under-employed vacuum cleaner salesman living in 1950s Cuba, is struggling to pay for his teenage daughter's increasingly extravagantly lifestyle. So when the British Secret Service asks to become their 'Our 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, 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 wonderfully funny and fast-moving romp.

Miss Holmes

Formby Little Theatre Youth Group present Miss Holmes by Christopher M Walsh, based on characters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Directed by Erin Grimes and Rachael Armstrong

When an anonymous note sends a newlywed wife looking for help, Miss Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Dorothy Watson work together to uncover the secrets surrounding a corrupt police inspector whose wives have a habit of turning up dead. But this Holmes and Watson face far greater challenges than bringing the cunning criminal to justice. Miss Holmes possesses one of the greatest deductive minds of her generation, but she chafes at the restraints imposed upon her by society and family. Dr. Watson struggles to make a difference at the only hospital in London that will hire female doctors. In a time and place where gender roles are rigidly defined, these unconventional women dare to challenge societal norms by providing an unusual, but necessary, service. Inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this theatrical fan fiction shines a new light on favorite characters from the canon, re-examining the Victorian world of Holmes and Watson by exploring the added obstacles faced by these two iconic characters if they were women.
