Casablanca, The Gin Joint Cut, OranMor, Various Dates July, 2017
‘Casablanca: The Gin Joint Cut’ returns to Òran Mór after delighting audiences from London to Paris to Barbados (not to forget Dunoon) and garnering rave reviews along the way.
A lovingly disrespectful homage to one of the classic films of all time, Morag Fullarton’s fast paced distillation will have you raise a Bogart style eyebrow, shed a Bergman-like tear and drown out the Nazis with a rousing chorus of the Marseillaise. Set in French Morocco, 1941, a hotbed of corruption, teeming with Nazis and refugees desperate to flee war torn Europe, Casablanca interweaves a tale of wartime conflict with political and romantic intrigue.
With original “superb multi-tasking” cast of Gavin Mitchell, Jimmy Chisholm, Clare Waugh.. and a little extra to get you in the mood – we start the evening with Jerry Burns performing songs from the 1940’s movies.
“.. DAZZLING..HILARIOUS… pure theatre magic” The Scotsman.
“Succeeds in evoking the thrilling plot of the original movie while allowing dazzling bursts of humour… superb.” The Herald
“Simply brilliant.. first class entertainment” Paris TV 24
“ A pitch perfect production.. you’ll want to play it again” London Times
