Rockdale's Guild Theatre is kicking-off their stellar 2019 program with Daylight Saving, Australian playwright Nick Enright's fast-paced comedy about love, loneliness, food and rigours of managing a temperamental tennis star.
Directed by Lyn Lee and starring a fabulously talented cast, Daylight Saving will run for a strictly limited season at The Guild Theatre. Tickets are now on sale.
Written by one of Australia's most esteemed playwrights, Daylight Saving features hilarious characters and situations that only the great Nick Enright (Cloud Street, The Boy From Oz, Blackrock) can create!
Director Lyn Lee is a NIDA graduate and teacher with a long career in professional theatre. Lyn is also the wife of a tennis coach and has personal insight into the world of tennis mentorship.
Rosemary Ghazi – playing Felicity – is treading the boards for the third time at The Guild. She played Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Gabriella in Boeing Boeing in 2017. Rosemary believes audiences will appreciate the fun, light-hearted nature of Daylight Saving.
Tye Byrnes plays Felicity's workaholic husband Tom. Tye is looking forward to his first Guild production and believes audiences will get a kick out of seeing a previously pre-occupied husband suddenly confronted with a would-be interloper.
Haki Pepo Olu Crisden is Josh – Felicity's old flame from her school exchange year in the USA in 1969. Audiences will remember Haki playing the dual roles of Theseus and Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Haki is looking forward to playing a romantic who attempts to play out his fantasy in real life.
Brayden Palmer is playing the hilarious role of Jason the international tennis icon who can't keep himself out of the newspapers for both his victories and his tantrums.
