The Tugun Theatre Company’s November 2011 Production is A Bad Year for Tomatoes by John Patrick. A Bad Year for Tomatoes is a comedy set in north east USA. The play, directed for Tugun Theatre Company by Carmen Hill, is about famous actress Myra Marlowe, who fed up with the pressures of her stage career, decides to take a retreat and settles in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven to write her autobiography.  She successfully turns down a number of parts that are offered to her by her long time agent, but dealing with her nosy, omnipresent neighbours is a very different matter. In an attempt to get rid of them and get some privacy Myra invents a mad, homicidal sister (Myra in a frightful wig), who is kept locked in an upstairs room but occasionally escapes for long enough to cause some chaos and frighten off the uninvited and very curious neighbours.  At first this scheme works well, but as one would expect complications develop, in particular, when the local handyman develops a crush on Sadie.

The Tugun Theatre Company’s performances of this play begin on Thursday November 10.  Bookings can be made on 07 5522 4740.  Tickets are $15 and $12 concession.
