In this production, it’s time to present a funny heartfelt story about Angela who is trying to ‘take charge’ after a divorce from her lying, cheating husband. A divorce that shocked her…but everybody else she knows, knew she was hurtling towards. A funny, contemporary story with heart.
With 1 in 3 Australian marriages ending in divorce, this is a highly relevant topic that is skillfully tackled by leading playwright Geraldine Aron. The West End Production of the show starred Dawn French (Vicar of Dibley, French and Saunders) and was nominated for a coveted Olivier Award as Best Entertainment.
Mandi Lodge says she’s enjoying the challenge of taking on a challenging issue using wit and honesty.
“As with any upheaval, people can find funny things happen amongst the drama and it is those lighter moments that help us get through and find perspective.”
“Our show works as either a funny, heartfelt time in the theatre or it can give people a chance to recognize the ups and downs of divorce and hopefully feel a bit better about those moments and laugh at some of the sillier stuff that goes on” said Mandi.
Tickets are $37 each and can be bought directly from the Ipswich Civic Centre website.
