Witty romp on stage with Not Now, Darling

The Penticton Chamber Theatre presents a witty comedy romp with Not Now, Darling.

A cast of 10 keeps the laughter going with non-stop action and clever dialogue as minks and winks are traded with equal fervour.

Not Now, Darling was penned in 1967 by playwrights John Chapman and Ray Conney. It later was adapted into the comedy film of the same name in 1973. The play is set in a London fur salon where one of the two owners, Arnold Crouch, has difficulty keeping everything afloat while his partner, Gilbert Bodley, is off philandering.

Bodley decides to sell his new mistress' husband a fur coat for an extremely low price in order to win her affection and crouch is stuck presiding over the deal. The husband decides to give the coat to his own mistress and that is when the trouble begins. Mistaken identities and all sorts of problems arise.

Tickets for Not Now, Darling are $20 and proceeds will go towards building the band shell in Okanagan Falls Centennial Park. The show takes place at Okanagan Falls Elementary School Friday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Dragon's Den in Penticton, Dogtown Café in Okanagan Falls or Bonnie Doon Health Supplies in Osoyoos.
