About Catch-22

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

“That’s some catch, that Catch-22.”

Captain John Yossarian is a U.S. Army bombardier and the last Assyrian alive, and he would very much like to keep it that way. Convinced that an entire army is trying to kill him, Yossarian desperately tries to evade battle (and the increasing demands of his superior Colonel Cathcart), but finds that there is always a catch. Meanwhile, the unit’s long-suffering Chaplain has found himself inadvertently caught up in a strange war of his own. And everyone is trying to locate the mysterious Washington Irving.

Heller’s satirical war classic will be performed at The Biscuit Factory in November, taking place in a recreation of the nose cone of a B-25 Mitchell bomber. The iconic framework of the bombardier seat will encompass the space, placing the audience intimately close to the action.

Bradley has secured an accomplished cast to take on the cult classic, with 14 actors performing a total of 40 parts.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Catch-22 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
