The Decorator by Donald Churchill will run at the Masque Theatre from Friday 14 to Saturday 22 September.

In the play, Marcia returns to her flat to find it has not been painted as she arranged­.

A part-time painter who is filling in for an ill colleague is just beginning the work when the wife of the man with whom Marcia is having an affair arrives to tell all to Marcia’s husband. Marcia hires the painter, a part-time actor, to impersonate her husband at the confrontation. Hilarity is piled upon hilarity as the painter, who takes his acting very seriously, portrays the absent husband. Chaos ensues and we wonder if the truth ever does come out.

V Tickets cost R100 and are available via Computicket or via the theatre on 021 788 1898 or at bookings­@­
