DIRECTOR
Penel Keegan has been around the traps of community theatre for many years now, both as director and actor. She believes in a collaborative effort with any play she directs – so long as cast members remember that ultimately it’s a directorial decision! She is of the belief that if a cast are getting on well behind the scenes then that will show on stage so tries to bear that in mind when casting any play. After all, this is being done for the love of theatre not the pay cheque, so it’s important that people are enjoying the experience.

A BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF THE PLAY
Hilda and Sam Fluck have at last found themselves with the empty nest they have been looking forward to. Both their adult children have finally left home and at last they have precious time for just the two of them … or do they? With today’s millennials often living at home from financial necessity until they are well into their 20s – or coming back to the nest when things go pear-shaped – this play has its relevance to today. This play is set in Canada in the 1950s, but with permission from the playwright, we are setting it in New Zealand in the 1960s.

THE ROLES
Hilda Fluck: mid-50s
Sam Fluck, her husband: mid-50s
Gary Fluck, their son: late 20s
Janey Fluck, their daughter: early 20s
Bobbi Jakes (female): early 30s
Beverly Woytowich (male): around 40
