The Union Theatre is proud to present Peter Nichols’ Oliver Award winning play Privates On Parade directed by Kirk Jameson and starring 2017 Drama Desk Award Winner, Simon Green.
Set during the Malayan Emergency of the late 1940’s, we follow the exploits of a song and dance unit during their tour of South East Asia as they provide light entertainment for the British Army.
Private Steve Flowers is posted to join the small show, which is conceived by and very much starring the wonderfully flamboyant Captain Terri Dennis, who’s cross dressing antics are the talk of the barracks.
Originally produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, this revised and rewritten version was first presented at the Donmar and is now directed by Kirk Jameson, who returns to the Union Theatre having most recently directed their production of Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun.
Kirk is also thrilled to be reunited with Simon Green, who will play the role of Captain Terri Dennis. The pair last worked together on ‘And The World Goes Round, which played at the Union’s original address in 2014.
Simon is joined by Sam Curry who plays the role of Private Steven Flowers. Previous credits include Jamie in THE D LIST (Underbelly, Edinburgh Festival Fringe); Brutus in JULIUS CAESAR (Network Theatre) and Hamnet in CESARIO (National Theatre).
Privates on parade is at The Union Theatre 22nd November – 16th December 2017.
