Play is a bit risque and that's okay with keen audiences

THE fun never ends for the Wild Goose Theatre Company.

 

Its latest play Not Now Darling is tantalising the community in a theatre restaurant performance at Camelot Motel.

Elders Gladstone real estate agent Julie Watts, the drama company's director, described the performance as just a little bit risque.

"It's a little bit more adult... we're finding people really enjoy that," she said.

The professional theatre organisation is run by a passionate group of locals.

The production, which began on October 18, will soon be coming to a close as the performers frantically prepare for their final show on October 27.

The play, written by Ray Cooney and John Chapman, is a wacky comedy following the amusing antics of Arnold Crouch and Gilbert Bodley, London businessmen operating a stylish fur salon.

Organiser and actor Irene Dudley said the group had been impressed with the public's response.

"It's been overwhelming," she said.

"It's so good to see people in Gladstone go out. And it's lovely to go out to something different."

Miss Dudley would not give too much away about her character but did mention she had to deal with a mean boss.

"I might secretly admire one of my other bosses though," she said.

Although the production team has performed about 13 plays before this one, Miss Dudley said they had done three plays together since forming Wild Goose Theatre Company.

"We do it cause we love it," she said. "Even though it's stressful we do it for the end result. It's fun."
