A Question Of Errol Flynn

A Question of Errol Flynn – a new play about Errol Flynn by Karen Lynne

Errol Flynn will be sailing into a port or appearing in a theatre near you.

Errol  battles with his Biographer, his Mother and Girlfriend – and his demons and addictions – so you can be sure of verbal fireworks, fencing and very adult themes – as you might expect.

Definitely for 16 and over!

The play has adult language, themes, and scenarios.

“I find that the world is a much kinder place with a drink inside you. It keeps the demons out.” ERROL FLYNN

Welcome aboard Ladies and Gentlemen!

A New Play about Errol Flynn

Missing Pieces Theatre Show Ltd are producing a new play about ERROL FLYNN called: “A Question of Errol Flynn.”

An evening with Errol Flynn as we watch him spar with his Biographer, Girlfriend, and his much loathed Mother.

This new play has previously been seen in a semi staged version at the Aldwych Theatre in the West End with a stellar cast and at Lauderdale House Arts Centre in Highgate, London.

Karen has returned to A QUESTION OF ERROL FLYNN and radically reworked the play  which currently has had many expressions of interest.

It is a terrific funny, thoughtful, and challenging, star vehicle for four amazing actors!

Errol was the definitively heroic and romantic Robin Hood – and yet had a public persona which both scandalised and fascinated people.

Karen Lynne has studied Flynn, the enigma, for many years – and comes to some surprising conclusions.

We watch as an older Flynn attempts to set his life down on paper.

Sadly he says: “I don’t know what the truth is any more!”

From the moment he hit Hollywood the myth making began: the studio said that he was born in Ireland because nobody knew where Tasmania was!

Flynn, however, had already been making up myths about himself for a long time!

In his first acting job in rep at Northampton, for instance, he suggested he was an Australian film star.

This was on the basis of appearing in a low budget Mutiny on the Bounty in a terrible blonde wig and overacting! They were skeptical, but as he played cricket, were happy to have the handsome young man in the company.

He was spotted by a Warner Brothers talent scout and his fate was set.

ERROL: Grins I’m too much for you aren’t I Sport!

WRITER: grins back Yes, but I’m getting used to you now.

ERROL: Listen kid, if I’ve missed anything out, it’s up to you to fill in the gaps.

WRITER: And if I don’t know what they are?

ERROL: Make them up, but for God’s sake make them interesting.

He was a sensitive and deeply read man, who wanted to be a writer.

He was contradictory and could be difficult at one turn and charming the next.

Karen’s play offers an insight into the mind of the REAL Flynn. It is both hilariously funny, scabrous and naughty, and then tragic and philosophical.

The Play contains adult language and themes throughout as may be expected. The Play also explores addiction.

It is unsuitable for children.
