Fans of iconic science-fiction drama Doctor Who might be tempted to book a flight to Tasmania to see a unique play exploring just how obsessed one man can be about his favourite television show.
The long-running BBC program tells of the adventures of a humanoid alien who explores the universe in his time machine.
Titled Who Knows, the play follows lovable loser Russell on his quest to foil an evil villain’s plot to destroy the national Doctor Who convention and take over the world.
Written by Tasmanian playwright Paul McIntyre and directed by David Quinn, the production will run from Wednesday September 28 to Saturday October 1 at Launceston’s Annexe Theatre.
All shows are at 19:00, with adult tickets costing $25, concessions $18 and students $10.
As part of Theatre North, the venue draws remarkable creative talent from all over Australia for Tasmanian audiences and visitors, while also supporting the development of locally-produced theatre and dance.
A number of wonderful theatre productions were performed in the island state during winter and it appears that spring will be no different.
