Casablanca--The Gin Joint Cut

Casablanca--The Gin Joint Cut

‘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. Read more …

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.

The critical consensus

Superb, cheeky take on classic 1942 drama.

****(*)Lorna Irvine, The List, 10/07/2017

Fast-paced, inventive and gloriously silly, this slick farce also manages, somehow, to tell the story of love, espionage and the fight for liberty. Six years on from its premiere, this much-loved spoof still has its audiences cheering it to the rafters.
