Mount Players presents Looped at the Mountview Theatre from May 10 to May 26.

During the summer of 1965, celebrated actress Tallulah Bankhead entered a Los Angeles recording studio to re-record (or “loop”) just one line of dialogue from her final film Die, Die My Darling. What should have taken about eight minutes ended up taking eight hours.

Playwright Matthew Lombardo, using a great deal of theatrical licence, offers a hilarious yet sympathetic ‘guesstimation’ as to what may have happened in that room on that day.

A special Mother’s Day matinee on Sunday May 12 – offers complimentary bubbles for all the mums and delicious treats at interval.

Bookings can be made via: themountplayers.com or call 5426 1892 for assistance.
