Opening at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg on 14 March is Derek S. Royle's 's uproariously funny farce "Flat Spin" - directed by Wendy Goddard for Muizenberg Dramatic Society.
David and Jane Kenway have a very happy marriage living in a flat in Wavertree Mansions with their five year old son Billy and their stack of unpaid bills. David is an actor and Jane looks after their home, an idyll of peace and harmony … Until into this oasis of perfection appears one mouse and an upstairs neighbour who in the space of two glasses of wine turns Jane (and the absent David’s) world upside down!
Meet the characters who complicate David and Jane’s life beyond belief, from a crazy lighting “expert”, wielding lighting stands with disastrous results, to a film director who speaks only Italian! Oh, and let’s not forget a talkative middle-aged lady who is convinced that she’s witnessed a murder and sends for the police. And then there’s the rather sweet, but slightly camp, advertising agent and David’s uncle, the Brigadier who certainly won’t stand for any nonsense.
This is the stuff of which farce is made and this 1960s Whitehall Farce, for which Brian Rix was justifiably famous, is one of the zaniest. If you enjoy a good night out and like a laugh – this is definitely for you!

Claremont Dramatic presents Noël Coward's Private Lives at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg. This production, directed by John Carne, will run from 21 Feb. to 1 March 2014.
Noël Coward’s hilarious and risqué comedy of manners, Private Lives, tells the sophisticated tale of a recently divorced couple who find themselves in adjoining hotel rooms while on honeymoon with their new – a wholly unsuitable – spouses. In typical Coward fashion, the play is liberally sprinkled with fast and hilarious repartee and the hint of farce. Witten from Coward’s sickbed in Shanghai in 1930, Private Lives is considered as his finest comedy and a “pure statement of Cowards genius”.

ABOUT THE PLAY
The Angkatell family is joined by their friends for a weekend at The Hollow. There is a history which all these people share. A murder in the house brings up the question up of whose history is more painful and resentful. In true Christie style, the murder mystery keeps us guessing right to the end.
The play is set in ‘The Hollow’, the stately country manor of Sir and Lady Angkatell.
