The Highgate, North London, theatre Upstairs at the Gatehouse has announced the premiere of a new play called Happy Warriors that will feature Evelyn Waugh as one of the principal characters. The script is by James Hugh Macdonald and is cryptically described in the theatre’s announcement:
1943. War rages in Europe. Evelyn Waugh, Randolph Churchill and a belligerent housekeeper are billeted together in a Yugoslav farmhouse. What could possibly go right?
The production will run from 28 March to 22 April. Booking details are available here.
