Not Now Darling officially opened over the weekend for their 3-weekend run of this hilarious comedy play which follows two fur salesmen as they navigate scantly clad women in closets, mobsters, mistresses, and wives. The audiences were continuously amused throughout the production as our leading men got themselves caught in a tangled web of secrets all while various items were thrown from the salon window.
This production is the directorial debut for Hannah Symonds, and even with 20 years of theatrical experience under her belt, she was still overwhelmed by the support of the community. “Directing has been a dream of mine for a long time now, I love being on stage but felt I needed a challenge after performing my dream role of Elphaba in Wicked in 2021. Directing has not been without its challenges, but these challenges have helped me gain a greater insight into the world of theatre and with the mentorship of the amazing Lyn Townsend its an experience that I will treasure. Being a small cast comedy play, I was nervous that this production wouldn’t be as welcomed as most of our larger cast musicals, however the community has been wonderful in supporting the theatre and I look forward to opening our doors for the last 6 performances of Not Now Darling.
The production has received a lot of positive feedback, praising the detailed set, hysterical storyline and fabulous acting from all involved.
Not Now Darling will run for another two weekends with closing performance on the 30th of July 2023, with a group discount of buy 5 get 1 free on tickets, this is a production not to be missed.
