Brendan O’Rourke and Henry Wyrley-Birch in Incident at Vichy at the Finboroug

Brendan ORourke

Brendan and Henry will be in Phil Willmott’s production Incident at Vichy from 28 March until 22 April. It will be the first professional production of Arthur Miller’s play in over 50 years.

The play is set in Nazi occupied France. In the detention room of a Vichy police station in 1942, eight men have been picked up for questioning but none are told why they are held, or when they can leave. At first, their hopeful guess is that only their identity papers will be checked – but as each man is removed for interrogation, some are set free, some are never seen again, and the stakes rise for those who remain…

Brendan and Henry both trained on the One Year Acting Course.
