Press clipping:
Mopo, 10 April 2008
Mit einer typischen Konstellation für garantiert peinliche Situtionen begeisterte das Stück des Briten Simon Williams. Ein Telefongespräch mit zwei Apparaten zwischen vier Personen ist witziger Höhepunkt im von Robert Rumpf in bester Boulevard-Manier inszenierten Stück. Amüsante und leicht zu genießende Komödie.

32nd Season
(2007 / 2008)

Nobody's Perfect

(Production photos of Simon Williams' comedy)

"Love Is All Around" is the name of a feminist publishing house where Harriet Copeland (Portia Booroff) is running a competition to find new romantic fiction written by women only. Leonard Loftus (Richard Auckland) sends her a manuscript and uses the female pseudonym "Myrtle Banbury". Harriet is impressed. She finds the writing superb and insists on meeting Myrtle in person so she can hand over the prize money. She pays Leonard a surprise visit, but he tells her his aunt Myrtle is sick in bed.

In order to collect the money, Leonard is forced to carry on the pretence that "Myrtle" exists by dressing up as a woman and pretending that he is his own fictitious aunt. The normally shy Leonard finds that as "Myrtle" he is at ease with Harriet.

Leonard's teenaged daughter, Dee Dee (Serena Giacomini), and his father, Gus (Seb Craig), play along with the deception, but expect, and receive, financial rewards from Leonard's wallet for their trouble. In the photo below we see Dee Dee helping Gus learn a song and dance routine for a karaoke competition.
