Progress Theatre: 'Catch 22' by Joseph Heller
The folly of war and those who make it pay is seen through the eyes of Yossarian, a nihilistic pilot convinced his number is up.
Every time 'Yo-Yo' reaches his quota of missions, the requirements are increased until he flatly refuses to fly. He'd like to get out but there's always a catch...
A satirical play based on the 1961 novel of the same name. The story follows Captain John Yossarian, a U.S. Army Air Forces B-25 bombardier, and a number of other characters, stationed on the Italian island of Pianosa.
Director: Guy Nichols.
CAUTIONS: gun shots, mild adult themes.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
Tickets: £12 (concessions £10) which you can book online TicketSource (booking fee applies)
