Synopsis: Encore Theatre proudly presents Robert Lord’s masterclass in comedy, “WELL HUNG”, directed by David Collins.

Set in the somewhat rundown main office of a police station in a small Australian town, circa 1970’s.

Written by the late New Zealand playwright Robert Lord, it's a play of based around mistaken identities and police cock-ups. "Well Hung" features a kook, a cop, his wife and her lover.

A deliciously funny, furious, farcical comedy of the highest calibre.

Other Information: As the geography of the play has shifted, no accents are required.
