‘Wing It, Dusty’ is the first ever stage play penned by Fishguard actress and Treasurer (God help them) of the Drama Queens Company, Teresa Hennessy.
After working together for approximately 37 minutes in the spring of 2012, actors Jennifer Scott-Reid (from Cambridge) and Teresa Hennessy (originally from Fishguard, but now living in Cardiff) decided to work together to take a high-camp, low-brow comedy to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival…and this is it.
Forever women to think things through (then dismiss any rational thoughts they may have had on the subject), the fact that Jennifer lived in Cambridge and Teresa lived in Cardiff provided no barrier to the rehearsal period… until they started rehearsing. They wish they could say that they had the foresight to buy shares in train companies and petrol stations but alas no; and I refer you back to the first sentence of this paragraph.
Being a very proud Pembrokeshire ‘gal’ (and Fishguard in particular), Teresa wanted to bring her first play home to Theatr Gwaun, so friends and family who won’t be able to make it to the Edinburgh Fringe will have a chance to see it. Nerves aside, she is extremely excited to appear for the second time on the stage of her home town. The first time was in 1974 when she won first prize in a fancy dress competition at Saturday morning cinema club dressed as the Bear from the ‘Singing Ringing Tree’; this was, of course, when Theatr Gwaun was a cinema only called ‘The Studio’.
Both Teresa and Jennifer are thrilled to be sharing the stage with local Fishguard Drama Group ‘Best Foot Forward’ who are also putting on a one act play entitled ‘The Ladybirds’ by Llanelli playwright, Tony Layton.
‘Wing it, Dusty’ tells the story of Deirdre and Roni who make the perfect couple. Maybe. Deirdre wishes Roni was Julie Andrews; Roni wishes Marni Nixon had dubbed Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia. They don't even have the same taste in music except for the divine Dusty. Both flawed, but comically grasping onto their world of reality by their fingernails in an attempt to help them get through the most important day of their lives. Planning for their big day, they will make you laugh out loud, but there's a twist – and will they be left laughing?
