Local theatre, Jenny Wren Productions returns to Randwick for the tenth year under the stars by the Lake. The programme says: “Chance meeting between sickeningly beautiful couple (in that 1940s way) leads to brief but all-consuming affair of the most romantic kind. Meals out, cinema, messing about in boats and good old British afternoon tea with lashings of cake guaranteed – for them, anyway. All played out in a railway station tea room under the watchful, or rather, nosy, eyes of an ensemble of larger-than-life staff, armed with sparkling wit and even a song or two.”
