Play gets a full house on opening night

The cast rises to the occasion.

A FULL house on opening night is something of a rarity but the cast of A Characteristic Quest thoroughly deserved it.

The medieval comedy, with a touch of the Monty Pythons, was as fresh and hilarious as when it premiered at Pinjarra Civic Centre in 2006.

Sir Frederick the Fearless and his bored fellow knights – among them Sir Leopold the Ladies Man, Sir Norman the Narcoleptic and Sir Charles the Chaste – set out to find a name for the mysterious and nameless Sir.

En route, one stormy night, they meet up with a band of sex-starved virgins.

Stand-out performances come from Geri Jones as Sir, father and son team Graham Cole as the blind lookout and Trick Cole, as Chuckles the Executioner and his three brothers and Paddy Larkin as Sir Norman.

A Characteristic Quest was written by ultra-talented siblings Geri Jones and Carole Dhu, with plenty of deliciously crude humour and foot-tapping songs.
