Big Trouble In Little Yalta

By Neil Salvage

An uproarious, satirical comedy about power, leadership and games.  It features Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, some hapless musicians and examines the ridiculous and horrifying consequences faced by the world when leaders infantilized by character deficiencies and too much power are driving the bus!

Our three monsters meet in a palace in the Crimea to determine the fate of the world as the war is coming to its conclusion - but they are distracted from their task by drinking games, jokes, Walt Disney, Myrna Loy, William Tell, a telephone flex and an accident with a Kalashnikov. As they spin out of control an anxious world awaits the results of their deliberations. Will they succeed in drawing up Europe’s agenda before the evening deadline? Why has General De Gaulle gone missing?  And what is in Roosevelt’s briefcase?
