Canberra Repertory Society. Director: Ross McGregor Set Design: Russell Brown. 30 July – 14 August
With his childhood dominated by his witheringly intelligent, sarcastic, grumpy bully of a father who happened to be blind, you might have expected Mortimer’s autobiographical play to be maudlin. Voyage Round My Father is certainly poignant, but mostly it's very funny. Canberra Rep’s production is a thrill to watch: clever, sympathetic and nuanced, and full of visual ironies.
