Hobart Rep announces stellar 2020 season

THE Hobart Repertory Theatre has launched its stellar 2020 season at The Playhouse Theatre.

Hosted by the iconic character Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced “Bookay” with the emphasis on the second syllable, if you please), the audience were treated to an evening of laughs as Hyacinth had the 2020 directors jumping through hoops.

Season 2020 includes the following shows:

Keeping Up Appearances:

Written by Roy Clarke, this classic comedy makes its Tasmanian premiere from 28 February to 21 March and is directed by Shauna-Lee Ward.

Blithe Spirit:

Written by Noel Coward, this farcical comedy is guaranteed to raise your spirits.

Running from 13 to 23 May and directed by Nicholas Lahey.

Charlotte’s Web:

Written by Joseph Robinette, based on E.B. White’s much-loved children’s book.

Running from 3 to 18 July and directed by Anne-Blythe Cooper.

Love from a Stranger:

Written by Frank Vosper, adapted from an Agatha Christie short story.

This “psychological chiller” runs from 23 October to 7 November.
