Daylight Saving

By Nick Enright

Felicity has it all; a successful Sydney restaurant, a home with water views and a handsome jet setting husband. But with the sudden visit by an old flame, infidelity could be on the cards. Felicity’s plans for a candle-lit reunion go awry when a string of unexpected visitors drop by.

Written by one of Australia’s much loved playwrights, Nick Enright (Cloud Street, The Boy From Oz), Daylight Saving is a deliciously fast-paced comedy about love, loneliness, food and friendship.

Daylight Saving

By Nick Enright


"Daylight Saving was something of a breakthrough play for Enright and this production shows its facets well. It's tightly constructed, shrewdly observed and, for a farce, notably humane" Sydney Morning Herald

"Adam Cook has drawn together a cast of comedy experts who lithely skip through the material...the one-liners are excellent and perfectly delivered" Daily Review 

"Entertaining and enlightening and very well done" Stage Noise 

"Highly entertaining... sharply executed and polished performances of the cast... snappy and laugh-out-loud rapport between the characters" 4/5 stars The Brag

"It’s a pleasure to hang out with these characters for the few hours we have them, because they feel real" Aussie Theatre 

"Cook wins great performances from a good cast...who take on Enright’s characters with style" Sydney Arts Guide 

"Director Adam Cook has put together a fantastic production. The set design, costumes and era-appropriate props are spot on, as are the performances" Live 4

"Nick Enright knocks over the pedestal of professional bliss in Pittwater" Concrete Playground
