The cast has been announced for Tom Dick & Harry a new play using top-secret information from the war archives classified until 1972 which opens at the New Vic Theatre Newcastle-Under-Lyme on 10 June (national press night 22 June) and Alexandra Palace Theatre, London on 26 July (London press night 28 July). The cast are Sam Craig, David Fairs, Andrius Gau?as, Michael Hugo, Perry Moore, Andrew Pollard, Nicholas Richardson, Dominic Thorburn, and Eddy Westbury.
From the team behind the smash-hit Around The World In 80 Days, directed by Theresa Heskins (Olivier Award-winning The Worst Witch) and co-produced by the New Vic Theatre and Kenny Wax Productions (The Play That Goes Wrong, Six The Musical), Tom, Dick & Harry is filled with dynamic drama, humour, and breath-taking theatricality, telling an extraordinary true story of the escape from Stalag Luft III, of solidarity across nations, and of an unbreakable spirit to achieve the impossible.
1943. A prisoner of war camp in Nazi-occupied Europe. Above ground, is a prison impossible to escape. But below ground, the prisoners spy an opportunity. For these are not ordinary prisoners.
Serial escapees, the prisoners held in Stalag Luft III begin an exhilarating game of cat and mouse with their captors. Hiding their covert activity in plain sight with gymnastic exercise, choir practice, and cabbage growing (!), the men tunnel deep into the ground beneath the camp’s huts, and soon the most intricate, most audacious, greatest escape of them all is underway…
