The Pink Hammer by Michelle Amas, directed for Cambridge Repertory Society by Chrissy Hodkinson at the Gaslight Theatre 12 – 26 September 2020. Reviewed by Nancy Davies
Again Cambridge Repertory has staged a very enjoyable production leaving an appreciative audience with smiles on their faces.
This New Zealand comedy has few characters and a simple storyline but also exposes the insecurities every person hides from public view.
All of the characters, four would-be DIY women and one extremely reluctant tutor were so believable I am expecting to see any one of them down the street anytime soon.
While this production had a long incubation period, blame Covid - 19, director Chrissy Hodkinson, the actors and the trusty behind the scenes crew persevered hoping that one day this play would make it to the stage.
Congratulations to Cambridge Repertory for not abandoning this project and making stage starved people very happy!
