Spy thriller comes to Buxton

Innovative theatre company Creative Cow will be bringing an evening of hilarity and satire to Buxton Opera House with its witty adaptation of Graham Greene’s spy thriller Our Man in Havana.

The play tells the tale of a luckless vacuum cleaner salesman who gets sucked in to a dirty world of espionage and double agents when the chance of helping out MI6 with a job or two proves too good an offer to resist.

Katherine Senior, actor and co-founder member of Creative Cow Productions, said: “After the success we had with Greene’s Travels With My Aunt last year, the Greene estate offered us the rights to Our Man in Havana and we thought it the perfect accompanying piece to follow Travels.

“We’ve had great fun producing this clever adaptation by Clive Francis and he has been very much involved in the process.”

The show can be seen at Buxton from April 20-22. For tickets go to http://www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk
