Some Sunny Day

4 Male, 2 Female

Martin Sherman Price: $16.95

Cairo, 1942. As war rages in the desert, cultures collide in the city and six individuals struggle to come to terms with love, lust and fate in an alien country

In a melange of Mozart, Carmen Miranda, Vera Lynn, Dixieland and cries from the minarets as the muezzins call the men to prayer, this witty and audacious play inhabits a world where everyone has something to hide and anyone may be a spy

Some Sunny Day was first presented at the Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1996, with Rupert Everett and Corin Redgrave
