What is he frightened of? What’s his secret? Does Maggie know something damaging about his past ? Is she about to blow the whistle on him?
Is sleaze about to catch up with Jeremy Bane?!

Post Office Theatre
The Post Office Theatre Company was born in 1995 when Riggs O’Hara, an experienced theatre director with successful Edinburgh Festival productions, amongst others, wanted a permanent space for his theatre group. Taking an old GPO sorting office, he created an open performance area with gallery above.
Having a fixed venue meant he could also realise his ambition of bringing a permanent writer on board, rather than continuing to create pieces through improvisation. Luckily, the writer who came along was Courttia Newland, already an acclaimed novelist. Whistling Maggie cast includes Carol Moses, Ronald Markham, Dominik Golding, Danniel Booth, Leon Barr and Michael Kofi.
