Missing Pieces Theatre Show presents The World Premiere of A QUESTION OF ERROL FLYNN by Karen Lynne
Details about streaming of the show to watch live from home will be available soon
Errol Flynn is on his schooner THE ZACA and battles with his young handsome biographer, his hated mother, loving girlfriend, his demons, and addiction: so you can be sure of verbal fireworks, fencing; hilarious and dramatic - the play never lets up. It also shows the reflective gentleman who would have rather been a writer than an actor.
This play has adult language, themes, and scenarios. The set by Eileen Aldous and lighting by Stuart Brindle will make the show totally immersive - with a boat in between the audiences and a surround sound environment by Jack Burman.
We are proud to be offering private addiction workshops for Turning Point, Anglia Care Trust, Lighthouse and Iceni generously sponsored by Ipswich Borough Council: SEEDS FOR CHANGE FUND.
See this World premiere prior to a National Tour. Karen Lynne is an acknowledged expert and consultant on Flynn. Previous plays include: COME DANCE WITH ME, NEVER GOODBYE, SING AS WE GO.
