The Rivals - 75th anniversary event

Kathy from Hutt Repertory Theatre

Our final production for our 75th anniversary year is almost upon us.

The Rivals by Richard Brinley Sheridan, adapted by Beth Flintoff and directed by Ewen Coleman.

Duels, duplicities and disguises abound in Sheridan’s timeless comedy, The Rivals. Its whirlwind plot revolves around the bookishly romantic Lydia Languish,who adores her lover when she thinks he is a poor ensign but is appalled when he turns out to be a well -connected Captain. Adding to complications, Lydia finds herself beset on all sides by a retinue of eccentric, bumbling suitors and stymied at every turn by her overbearing, formidable and linguistically-challenged aunt, Mrs Malaprop.

Have you resorted to cutting your own hair?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

For many New Zealanders, there's never been a better time to give themselves DIY bangs, a drunken bowl cut or partial shave of the head.
But worried stylists across the country are preparing for the hair-pocalypse when salons reopen. Have you resorted to cutting your own hair? How did it go?
