Mates Theatre Genesis presents My Husband's Nuts at the Birkdale School of Arts from July 19 to August 3.
Barbara's husband Jack (played by Andrew McArthur), is a nervous wreck and will not leave the house. He is suffering from agri-phobia (the fear of agriculture) and is convinced that he is a Japanese soldier holding out on an island after World War II.
With Jack due to give the opening speech at the local agricultural show, Barbara (played by Libby Harrison) has to rely on three unlikely candidates to restore Jack's mind. These are the new vet Jo (played by Diana Gogulski), law enforcer Terry (played by Stephen Corrigan) and daughter Charli (played by Carolyn Wagner).
Written by New Zealand author Devon Williamson, the play is pure entertainment, set in a familiar Australian setting.
Director Mark Harrison said he believed it would entertain a wide audience.
Show are at 7.30pm on July 19, 20, 26, 27 and August 2 and 3. A matinee show will be staged at 2pm on Saturday, July 20. Tickets are $25, $20, $10 and are available at matestg.org.au or on 0416 836 196. This play contains some adult themes. Parental guidance is recommended.
