IN BLACK AND WHITE

Director  ::  Jennifer JONES

What price friendship when the trust is challenged?

Two long standing old friends, one moving house, find the past catching up with them both in a play that deals with moving forward and letting go of our past.

In Black and White sensitively moves the actors backwards and forwards on a tightrope of humour, trust, perceived betrayal, and acceptance.

The role of the one of the woman's daughter is a perfect foil to the twosome as she adroitly looks upon the unfolding situation less emotionally, wondering if she ever knew either of them at all.

 

THE TRAVELLER'S TABLE

Director  ::  Silvana SILIATO

Mayhem can only erupt when erotic Asian massage, a fake priest and feral cats collide!

At a tiny outback motel, people travelling alone are invited to dine together at the traveller’s table. A bored fertiliser salesman with the gift of the gab amuses himself by picking a business card at random from the lobby notice board and then pretending to be the person on the card – in this case a parish priest. But unbeknown to him, one of the other lone travellers, a bored housewife, is playing the same mischievous game by pretending to be a purveyor of erotic Asian massage! Caught in the middle of the two wacky pretenders is a troubled young public servant who has corruptly under-counted the local feral cat population.

This fast moving comedy poses the question “Why be yourself when it’s more fun to be someone else?”
