Who: Adults

Where: Peter Goodfellow Theatrette, Penrith City Library
Tickets: $5, includes light refreshments. Bookings essential. 

Do you hate noisy restaurants, pre-ripped jeans and pedestrians who
walk five abreast? 

Do you also have a problem with plastic-wrapped fruit, climate-change deniers and take-away sandwiches priced at $14.95? 

And most of all, do you think the world would be a better place if people got back their sense of humour? 

Here's proof you are not alone. Heartfelt and hilarious, serious but sly,
Best Wishes is the encyclopedia of 'can do better'. It's a plea for a better world - one wish at a time.
