Nobody’s Perfect wasfirst performed in the UK in 1998, tells the story of an aspiring writer who can only get his novel published by masquerading as a woman. “Nobody’s Perfect” is a romantic comedy, bordering on farce, with plenty to laugh about.
Harriet is a feminist publisher, with a penchant for unsuitable men friends. Leonard is a stuttering statistician whose wife has walked out on him. Their lives become intertwined when Leonard submits his manuscript to Harriet's publishing house, “Love is All Around”, under the nom de plume of Myrtle Banbury. She offers Myrtle £15,000 to publish the book, “Meet me in St Albans”, and in order to get his hands on the cash Leonard has to keep up the pretence of being a woman.
The stage is thus set for a series of comic encounters and misunderstandings, not to mention a great evening’s entertainment. The piece played to packed houses every night and judging by the level of laughter was a much appreciated bright spot in an otherwise dull November.
