Rehearsals of playwright Andrew Yate’s wry take on the collapse of the Soviet Union “From Here to Maternity” are well underway at the Narrogin Repertory Club.

Club president Josh Pomykala said the upcoming performance was sure to raise a smile.

“It’s a good play; there’s a lot of witticism, it relies a lot on wit,” he said.

“Humour is always good to address issues and to have something like this, this sort of comedy, is good for the club.”

Set in the late 80s, the play follows the story of two nurses who find themselves in the fictional Eastern European country of Bolonia.

“The nurses come across the interesting characters of the President of Bolonia and his heavily pregnant wife,” Mr Pomykala said.

“Meanwhile, the United Nations have also visited Bolonia to get them to hold democratic elections — there’s a lot going on in this small country, but I won’t reveal too much else.”

The play will be the club’s first performance of the year and the second that Mr Pomykala has directed.

Shows will be held from May 4-13 at the Thornton Theatre on Fairway Street.

Tickets and times can be found on the Arts Narrogin website.
