A FRENCH comedy from the 1890s is set to hit the stage in Scone this month.
Scone Community Amateur Dramatic Society (SCADS) will present The Boor Hug at the Old Court Theatre, with the first performance to take place on September 23.
The play will see Patrick Wild star alongside Dominique McGovern, Miles Noonan and Maria English.
Director Phil Charley believed the play would resonate well with modern audiences.
“It is a one act play which will run for an hour; it’s written in the 1890s and you’d think that would make it less accessible today, but it is still very funny,” he said.
“It’s Patrick’s first time on stage and he has a significant role, so we’re really happy to welcome any new actors into SCADS.”
Mr Charley said the annual production, which was previously held during the Scone and Upper Hunter Horse Festival in May, had been pushed back because of a congested schedule.
“There is already so much happening at that time of year so we decided to put on a spring play instead of an autumn one,” he said.
“We need to schedule productions in these milder seasons because there is no heating or cooling in the theatre.”
Supper will be provided after every performance, with tickets available for $25 from www.trybooking.com/buy-tickets/
The dates for the play are: September 23, 24, 25, 29, 30 and October 1. The play starts at 8pm. Doors open 30 minutes before curtain up.
