The January TOADS production is Nobody's Perfect by Simon Williams; a feel good hilarious comedy, sure to fend off those January and post-Christmas blues.
'Love Is All Round' is a feminist publishing house where Harriet Copeland is running a competition to find new romantic fiction; their motto is 'For Women By Women'. To avoid this gender bias, Leonard Loftus is forced to submit his novel under a female pseudonym, namely Myrtle Banbury Leonard begins to have a major problem when Myrtle wins the first prize! He is a bashful statistician lumbered with a spectacular alter ago. With domestic complications from his wayward daughter Dee Dee and Gus, his rascally old father, Leonard tries frantically to keep up the charade. His problems are made worse when he falls hopelessly in love with Harriet. He is a worried man in the guise of a carefree woman. The happy ending is not going to be easy. Our hero is caught in a hilarious dilemma of cross-dressing and cross-purposes. Nobody's Perfect has been acclaimed as a classic feel good romantic comedy. It has the fertile tradition of Some Like It Hot, Tootsie, and Mrs. Doubtfire. This is a play that offers belly laughs galore - four irresistibly loveable characters locked into a hilarious plot. The final scene has been described as a comic masterpiece.
The Director Anna Reynolds is a familiar face at The Little Theatre both on stage and in a directorial role and has had much fun during the rehearsals of Nobody's Perfect, with a first class cast and a wonderfully funny script.
