Highly successful couple, Felicity and Tom, live for their spectacular and demanding careers; his as a powerhouse tennis coach and hers as a feted Sydney restaurateur. Unfortunately their achievements are casting a pall over a once fruitful marriage.

Left to her own devices when work commitments send Tom to Los Angeles on their wedding anniversary, Felicity finds herself contemplating the life they have built together. As the clocks turn back for daylight saving, she receives a surprise phone call from Josh, her first ever love. Is infidelity on the cards? Will Felicity be tempted to ease her loneliness by Josh’s persistent charms? Complicating matters is a neurotic tennis player with psychic problems, the arrival of Felicity’s

prying mother and one highly stressed neighbour. Full of clever dialogue, astute observations and witty one-liners, Daylight Saving is one of Nick Enright’s most beloved works, winning the 1990 Australian Writers’

Guild and Best Stage Play Awards.
