IN THE ​70th anniversary of one of the most classic films of all time, the Gilded Balloon brings Casablanca: The Gin Joint Cut to Dundee Rep Theatre on Sunday, October 28 and Monday, October 29.

A lovingly disrespectful homage to the film, watch as this ‘superb multi-tasking cast’ whisk you back to Morocco 1941.

This fast-paced, action packed comedy, written and directed by award-winning director Morag Fullarton is a cleverly constructed tribute to the film.

It stars the comic actor, Gavin Mitchell impersonating Humphrey Bogart playing Rick Blaine, alongside the amazing cast of Clare Waugh and Jimmy Chisholm.

With a wonderful, yet simple set design by the award-winning Kenny Miller.

Tickets are on sale from Dundee Rep theatre box office on 01382 223530 or online www.dundeerep.co.uk

Casablanca has some of the most iconic scenes and best lines ever written, so why not play it again?

But this time in a tiny gin joint, with three actors.

Morag Fullarton’s fast paced distillation will have you raise a Bogart-style eyebrow, shed a Bergman-like tear and drown out the Nazis with a rousing chorus of the Marseillaise.

The show has received 5 star reviews for the play’s premiere at Glasgow’s Oran Mor in 2010 as part of A Play, A Pie & A Pint series; and for its runs at the Tron Theatre and Edinburgh Fringe in 2011 and 2012.
