Dural Musical Society
“Nana’s Naughty Knickers”
by Katherine DeSavino
By arrangement with Origin Theatrical, on behalf of Samuel French Inc.
Our October production is the delightful comedy “Nana’s Naughty Knickers” by Katherine DeSavino. With Stage Direction by Eddie Bruce and Mel Hogan, this is definitely a show you can ‘bring your Nan to’ – or your Mum and Dad for that matter.
Set in New York, Bridget takes the opportunity to spend some time with her favourite Grandmother before heading off to University. The visit introduces her to Tom, the local cop on the beat, and Nana’s dear, and very interesting, friend Vera. As Bridget discovers and freely admits… being Nana’s roommate for the Summer is going to be an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the area! Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her Nana get arrested – or worse! – evicted? If you like a good laugh, then come along to the Dural Soldiers’ Memorial Hall to find out how Bridget manages to cope with her Nana’s illegal sideline and the apartment block manager who is trying to evict her.
Following the success of “A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum” in May, Dural Musical Society follows up with another comedy – this time a modern day look at how an enterprising old age pensioner and her best friend can cause havoc in the city of New York. DMS regulars will be pleased to see Linda Corbin and Judy Clarke playing Nana and her friend Vera, while “Forum “ patrons will recognise Brooke Stephens as Bridget, Tom Oliver as the local policeman, and Millie Reid as the unexpected visitor. Support roles are played by Eddie Bruce, Joshua Brown and Karen Smyth.
So how good is this show? Here is what the Lancaster Journal has to say about it…
“Nana’s Naughty Knickers is a slick comedy by a relatively new playwright, Katy DiSavino… the dialog is crisp and funny, and the action fast-paced… this Senior Citizen’s sexy sideline will have you in stitches!”
