Kamikaze Gound Staff Reunion Dinner, The

Stewart Parker’s raucous, wry satire of the macho, infantile depths a gang of men can drag themselves down to, the fictional old boys’ dinner (in Tokyo) being inspired by the author’s experiences of a scout reunion he attended. To enforce the point, the entirely white, British cast play the roles of ex-Japanese servicemen as if they were old English comrades, with no concession to accent or mannerism. The now civilian dentists, salesmen and bakers get progressively more plastered, chunter on about the state of Japan today, and begin to revert to their suicidal ways. “A few drinks, and Bojo’s your uncle!” Starring Peter Sallis, Richard Vernon and Harold Goodwin.
