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!
