Their current production is The Sweet Delilah Swimming Club
, a fast-moving story about five American women from the south, whose friendships began in the days when they were all members of a College swim team. Every August these women reconnect during a girl's weekend away at the same beach cottage, the "Sweet Delilah" in North Carolina.
What do these five women get up to during these girlie weekends? Everything that you would expect: drink, share secrets, dis husbands and children, and laugh. There are lots of laughs.
The Sweet Delilah Swim Club
focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Despite all of the women having different personalities and interests, their friendship is constant.
This production moves quickly provides lots of laughs with a touch of pathos and is good entertainment. I particularly enjoyed the simple yet authentic stage setting. Who hasn't visited a holiday cottage on the coast that doesn't house a Scrabble board and a jigsaw puzzle?
This production is showing at the Ron Hurley Theatre at 28 Tallowwood Street, Seven Hills which is a comfortable, intimate theatre space with plentiful onsite car parking facilities.
