The starting point to Nick Enright’s DAYLIGHT SAVING is unremarkable. The play takes place in March 1989 around the time when Daylight Saving is about to end for another year.
A middle class North Shore couple, Tom and Felicity, are struggling to find time together. Tom, a high profile sports agent, is always travelling overseas to cater to the whims of his clients. He is about to head off and Felicity- nicknamed Flick- chides him, again.
Are you on the lookout for some witty comedy, a good bit of escapism?! The Guild Theatre’s current production should fit the bill.
This is a a very witty and clever play by American writer Paul Rudnick. The main character is sensitive young soapy star, Andrew Rally, who is going through a lot of stuff and the play’s central question is whether he is going to be able to keep it together.
The play starts with Rally having moved from the suburbs to an apartment in the Big Apple. He has made the move because the television network pulled the plug on the soapy series in which he starred as a charismatic Doctor and has had to find new work.
