The Malanda Theatre Company are thrilled to announce their Christmas show Bedroom Farce by that master of comedy Alan Ayckbourn. Set in three bedrooms the action moves from one ridiculous situation to the next. It is high in energy, high in pace and high in humor. An entertaining way to finish 2016!
Performances will be on November 25, 26, 27 and December 1, 2, 3, 4.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm), and Sunday performances are at 3pm (doors open at 2.30pm). There will be an interval, and a bar for refreshments as well as tea & coffee available.
Patrons must arrive in time for the show to start, as the set is on the floor of the auditorium, and the seating on the stage, so it is impossible to enter once the play begins.
Tickets go on sale October 31
Also available at Tableland Books Atherton, Elders Real Estate Malanda and ECHO Malanda.
Tickets are $20 for opening night, $25 for all other shows, and $20 for groups of 10+, per seat.
Bedroom Farce has a cast of eight, four couples ranging in age from 20’s to 60’s. The older couple, Ernest and Delia in their 60s, their spoilt son Trevor and his neurotic wife Susannah, Jan, Trevor’s ex-girlfriend and her husband Nick who is confined to bed (for the whole play) with a bad back, and finally the newlyweds Malcolm and Kate.
The cast includes…
Ernest – Mark Baker
Delia – Judy Quilliam
Nick – Damien Cavanagh
Jan – Sophie Irvine
Malcolm – Simon Heaney
Kate – Cath Moran
Trevor – Jim Hill
Susannah – Lucy Morris
The action of the play takes place on a Saturday evening and Sunday morning in the bedrooms of Ernest and Delia, Nick and Jan,
and Malcolm and Kate.
Rehearsals have been underway since September, and involve much merriment and occasional stunt work… The cast and crew are having a blast! Bedroom Farce is directed by Gill Harrington and produced by Graham Harrington.
