Yesterday a new production was released (I know, they’re rolling out fast!) – ‘In Merry Mexico’ by Stephen Leacock. I played the Assistant – you can hear my American accent very briefly in this!
In Merry Mexico is taken from the collection Further Foolishness, which contains a number of political satires, focusing on the subject of war. In this story, the narrator travels to Mexico, which he believes to be in the grip of a revolution, in search of an old friend and business associate. However, he finds that the situation is not quite as he had expected.
