Come experience the seventeenth lay off season in the Leech residence in Ray Lawler’s groundbreaking Australian classic, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll this April.

Each summer for sixteen years Roo (Andrew Alley) and Barney (Ian Johnson) have flown down from the cane fields of North Queensland to the city streets of Carlton, Melbourne to spend the layoff with their sweethearts Olive (Julia Lefik) and Nancy. But on the seventeenth summer everything has changed. Tensions are high when the men arrive after a particularly trying season and Olive has recruited her respect-able work mate Pearl (Clare Wigley) to replace a recently married Nancy. These new circumstances will put their relationships to the test and force them to question the past sixteen summers.

Summer of the Seventeenth Doll is Beenleigh Theatre Group’s third production of their 2018 season and one you won’t want to miss!

SEASON FROM 21 APRIL – 6 MAY

SYNOPSIS:

COSI by Louis Nowra

The year is 1971 and as people march in the streets protesting against the Vietnam War a young director named Lewis endeavours to mount a production of Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte in a small burnt-out theatre on the grounds of a mental institution with a cast of madmen. COSI explores the life lesson that Lewis experiences as his life is touched by these extraordinary people. As his operatic production lurches forward, the audience learn, along with Lewis, that when chasing your dreams it helps to be a little crazy. This play is a poignant look at life through the eyes of patients at an insane asylum. It’s an hilarious take on the madness of creative endeavour and the chaotic terror of getting up there and making a fool of yourself. First produced in 1992, COSI has become one of the most produced Australian plays. Semi-autobiographical in nature, Louis Nowra has written a terrific play about madness, illusion, sanity…and theatre.

Featuring Andrew Alley, Elodie Boal, Benjamin Bray, Bradley Chapman, Aaron Dora, Skyah Lunar Fishpool, Rachel Hunt, Dudley Powell, Brent Schon, Matt Steenson and Jermia Turner

Directed by Timothy Wynn
