“You should dream more, Mr Wormold. Reality in our century is not something to be faced.”


Our Man in Havana

17 to 26 March 2022

Stables Theatre, 138 Main Highway, Ellerslie, Auckland


Written by Graham Green

Adaptation by Clive Francis

Directed by David Blakey

Present by Ellerslie Theatre


James Wormold, an under-employed vacuum cleaner salesman living in 1950s Cuba, is struggling to pay for his teenage daughter's increasingly 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 begins to recruit non-existent sub-agents, concocting a series of intricate fictions. He files bogus reports using Charles Lamb’s Tales from Shakespeare and dreams up military installations from vacuum-cleaner designs. 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.
