Our latest show was an Australian classic comedy by Hannie Rayson, and was directed by Harry Dewar. We had a great cast that worked beautifully together.
The central character of this farce is Dawn Snow, a woman with a fierce reputation – she reformed the prison system in Uganda. Now, with local government reform high on the agenda, she is called upon to perform a similar task within the City of Greater Burke, with hilarious results.
Competitive Tenderness is topical, satirical and even a little anarchic, but most of all it is very, very funny indeed. Hannie Rayson’s inspired farce takes a swipe at bureaucracy, corruption, romance and just about anything else that comes her way. It was the standout comic highlight in its year of release.
