Casablanca (the Lunchtime Cut)

Synopsis:
a lovingly disrespectful homage to one of the classic films of all time. Set in French Morocco, 1941, a hotbed of corruption, teeming with Nazis and refugees desperate to flee war torn europe, Casablanca interweaves a tale of wartime conflict with political and romantic intrigue. the 'lunchtime cut' was born of a great affection for the movie Casablanca, so why not 'play it again' ? (..but in a tiny gin joint with a cast of three).

Sunset Boulevard: The Lunchtime Cut

Synopsis:
A bitter comedy and a dark tragedy, the story centres on a wealthy, egotistical, faded star, Norma Desmond, desperate to 'return to the millions of fans she deserted', and young, down-on-his luck writer, Joe Gillis, who sees a opportunity to exploit the situation. Sunset Boulevard: The Lunchtime Cut is both a savage indictment of the star system (and the monsters it creates) and a depiction of a writer's impotence in Hollywood. Based on Billy Wilder's classic film noir, Morag Fullarton's adaption retains the dark comic heart of the original while turning it into a theatrical treat.

Notes:
from the screenplay by Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett
