Lovely Lovborg’s Women

Clever Astrid Stark decided to celebrate her birthday with a block booking for the return of The Mechanicals‘ production of Lovborg’s Women at The Intimate last night. What a great idea, I thought.

This incarnation of the play (I saw one years ago with Gaetan Schmidt, Allan Committee, Robyn Scott) also directed by Chris Weare, is up to date, sexy and completely hilarious. Mikkie-Dene LeRoux, Andrew Laubscher, Tinarie van Wyk Loots and Adrian Collins are the four who race us though the different genres and interpretations of Lovberg’s (the fictitious playwright’s) women. It is hilarious, cheeky and delicious.

It’s a bit like watching a brilliantly inspired, well rehearsed TheatreSports show; with all the madness of send up done with amazing commitment, music and costumes. And it is total, great fun. My favourite was the Third World Bunfight send-up. Classic.

This is a re-run, for all of us who missed it the first time around, and it’s a great opportunity to get into a theatre for brilliant performances, and team work, tightly directed and a completely satisfying laugh out loud.
