Farce to open for Woy Woy Little Theatre
Woy Woy Little Theatre's next play is American playwright Neil Simon's first and only farce, Rumors.
Performances open from May 26 and will continue through to June 11.
The play is a comedy-style mystery featuring Paul Karton, Kim Kelly, Andrew Thomson, Blair Cunningham, Scott Goodacre, Sierra Phillips, Luke Kaalim, Adriana Nunez, Flynn Edwards and David Wicks.
Director Ms Shea Wicks said she loved directing Simon's plays.
This is the third Simon play I've done.
"Two years ago it was The Odd Couple for Woy Woy Little Theatre (which I directed originally about 20 years before), and before that, Come Blow Your Horn.
"His plays are always funny, not only do the audience enjoy lots of laughs but the actors always get a kick out of Simon's absurd comedic turns," she said.
The director said rehearsals had been a dream as the cast was switched onto Simon's brand of humour.
"We know Rumors is going to have a lot of happy people leaving the Peninsula Theatre at the end of the second act," Ms Wicks said.
