The Indee marks the conclusion of Senior Citizens’ Week with a twin Super Comedy Special, IN THE WAKE OF HAROLD PARSLEY and THE HERB GARDEN. This is another in the series of Sunday Laughter-noons.
HAROLD PARSLEY was one of those nondescript people who nobody really quite remembered and when required to, they grasped at straws. His immediate family of sisters and cousins held a wake in his honour and were quite at a loss to remember the good times, or even the bad. But the vagueness stopped short when two children dropped in with some surprising news.
Neryl Hagenbach, Lindley Moon, Di Meyers, Carol Burls, Fiona MComb, Emily and Grace Broadbent and Isabella Parker, team for this laugh-maker.
The second laugh-a-lot offering is a revival of The Indee production of THE HERB GARDEN. Perhaps in the dim, distant past, this story drew on memories of other dark comedies like Arsenic & Old Lace. Two delightful spinster sisters evolve a lucrative herb growing business to supplement their pensions. Their happy existence becomes very unhappy when a cold-case detective–sergeant arrives on the doorstep looking for answers to a long ago happening.
Here we have the original cast back together, Rita Walker and Carol Burls as the sisters and Lindley Moon as the long arm of the law. A comedy with a double-double twist.
These comedies will be presented as super-rehearsed readings. Just like normal plays, with costumes, props, sets and moves etc but with the actors allowed to refer to their scripts if necessary.
This Seniors’ Week Indee Comedy Theatre Special is at 2pm Sunday 25th August at the Yandina School of Arts (doors open at 1.30). It’s relaxed table seating with complimentary tea and coffee plus wines, juices and snacks on sale.
It’s also pretty special in the ticket department with entry at just $10, members/Yandina locals $5 and even at these prices you can still book – Call Carol on 5472 8200 (or tickets at the door).
We hope you can join us for a couple of “Happy Hours”.
