MODERN day comedy Cake debuts in Busselton this week and is sure to delight local crowds.

The latest offering from the Busselton Repertory Club directed by Joe La Mancusa is set in Sittingbourne Ken, a nice enough place where gossip spreads like wildfire.

Written by emerging playwright Mike Heath, most of the action takes place in the Jones’s kitchen with the rivalry between two neighbouring families who have lived side by side for fifteen years stretched to the limit.

“It is a real family drama and we don’t want to give too much away,” Mr La Mancusa said.

“We have family members who have reached the end of their tether being put down by others with plenty of comedy and mystery involved too.”

Mr La Mancusa said the cast have been working hard to bring their character to life.

“Being a modern play there are some adult themes and innuendo weaved in,” he said.

“The play is set in the current time and even though it’s a comedy, it touches on some very topical subjects.”

Tickets to the Weld Theatre show are available at Callows Newsagency or by calling Marg on 9752 1657.

The show will be performed on Thursday, October 15, Thursday, October 22, Wednesday, October 28, Thursday, October 29 and Saturday, October 31.
