a comedy by Nick Hall, directed by Raewyn Nevin
An amusing study of marital and human relations – accomodation being both a place to live and the adjustments we make to fit our situation.
Lee Schallert, housewife, feeling she may be missing out on something, leaves her husband, Bob, and her suburban home and moves into a two room Greenwich Village apartment with two roommates. One roommate, Pat, is an aspiring actress, never out of character or costumes; but through an agency mix up, the other roommate is a serious, young, graduate student male. The ensuing complications when Bob, Lee's husband, arrives makes for an hysterical evening.

by Enid Blyton, adapted by David Wood and directed by David Blakey

David Wood's play will be a hit with all, whether they know Noddy or not. Noddy and his friends are pitted against the sneering goblins and a greedy witch, in this fresh, funny and inventive adaptation.
As in the original works, Noddy learns the value of friendship, hard work and honesty, through a series of adventures: building his house in Toytown, driving a car, outwitting his enemies, even surviving a hair-raising experience at Noah’s Ark!
