Fol­low­ing the story of a ladies man caught up in an awkward love-tri­an­gle, Not Now, Dar­ling opens at Tu­gun theatre tonight and stars Mark Fell, Peter Bar­rett, Gai Byrne, Rianna Hart­ney-Smith, Jay­den Krebs, Bill Cox, Rebecca Littlewood, El­iz­a­beth Seidl, Sue-Ellen McCub­ban, Ge­off Davis and Jean Wat­son.

Rawl­ings says Not Now, Dar­ling, which is set in a May­fair fur salon in Lon­don in the 1970s, of­fers plenty of laughs.

‘‘It is quite fun and mad with sub­tle English hu­mour. The way it’s writ­ten is witty and funny,’’ she says.

Track­ing down fur for the salon proved a hard task.

‘‘It was cer­tainly hard to source in Queens­land but we were lucky to find some for $5 each from a sec­ond-hand fundraiser,’’ she says.

Not Now, Dar­ling opens at Tu­gun Vil­lage Com­mu­nity Cen­tre tonight and plays Thurs­days to Satur­days un­til May 25, with a 2pm mati­nee on Satur­day.
