Cross-dressing, bondage, careers and control feature in Otaki Players' Lashings of Whipped Cream. The one-woman adult play, performed by Kirsty White, is described as a comedy, full of frank discussions. White is well-known to Levin audiences, having appeared in Levin Little Theatre plays, as well as musicals at Levin Performing Arts and Palmerston North's Abbey Theatre. While Mistress Dominique has moments of personal reflection, it is very much a comedy in which both men and women will find her points of view produce giggles and laughs a minute. This is a comedy with a difference,'' White said. Publicist Janine Moody describes the play as funny, ten- der and surprising''. Mistress Dominique reveals the secrets of her profession and of her clients, and the audience learns much more than the tricks of the trade. In between customers, the audience becomes her confidante, as she reveals her own demons and desires, and the story of her life.'' The comedy was written by Fiona Samuel, who took the role of Mistress Dominique at Circa Theatre in Wellington. Samuel has worked as an actor, playwright and singer, directed films for television, and was a scriptwriter for television show Outrageous Fortune. The director is Allan Marsden. May19to21andMay26to28, 7.30pm, Civic Theatre, Main St, Otaki. Tickets from Railway Bookshop and otakiplayers.org.nz. Harpsichord a touch of romance The Aeolian Players: Ariana Odermatt, harpsichord; Margaret Guldborg, cello; Calvin Scott, oboe and Peter Garrity, viola. By MARGARET IRVINE A harpischord will be in the lineup when The Aeolian Players take to the stage for the second Mulled Wine con- cert in Paekakariki. The concert series has fea- tured new and unusual combinations of instruments during its four years and most classical music aficionados are known to like listening to a harpsichord, concert organ- iser Mary Gow said. That intricate, twinkling sound evokes images of elegantly dressed ladies and courtly gentlemen conversing in a grand ballroom some- where back in the 17th cen- tury. This instrument preceded the piano and many famous composers of the era wrote for it.'' The harpsichorist with the Aeolian Players, Ariana Oder- matt, plays a beautifully- decorated replica double- manual instrument, the orig- inal of which was built in 1769 by the Parisian master Pascal Taskin, said Gow. The quartet also includes Americans Margaret Guldborg, cello, and Peter Garrity, viola, and New Plymouth's Calvin Scott, oboe. The concert will feature wonderful French and German baroque chamber music from the 18th century'', said Gow. This includes Jacques Hot- teterre's Suite No 3 for oboe and basso continuo, op. 5, Bach's Sonata for viola da gamba and harpsichord and works by Georg Telemann and Dietrich Buxtehude. The concerts are held in the Paekakariki Memorial Hall. They feature work by local artists. Eric Heath, who was the political cartoonist at The Dominion newspaper for 28 years, will be the next guest artist. Heath has illustrated more than 100 books ranging from marine life to steam trains to sailing ships and is also a painter and mixed media art- ist. May 22, 2.30pm, Paekakariki Memorial Hall, The Pde, Paekakariki. Tickets $20, children $5, from firstname.lastname@example.org, Paekakariki Fruit and Veg, Lush Design, Moby Dickens, Footnote, Patricia's Fashions and Otaki Veterinary Centre. Bullfrog on stage Blues musician Bull- frog Rata will be mak- ing a splash tomorrow night at Lembas Cafe. Though known as a bluesman, Rata's tastes are many and varied. I do all sorts of things depending on what feels right, with me, the band and the crowd at the time. But blues is definitely the glue that holds the gumbo together.'' Playing with him are The Undergators, Earl Pollard on drums and Tony Faulkner on bass. He will also be joined by special guest Janine Knap, who he describes as an astounding singer''. Tomorrow, 7.30pm, Lembas Cafe, Raumati South, $10.
