The Guild Theatre’s new production is the clever thriller I’LL BE BACK BEFORE MIDNIGHT by Peter Colley directed by Jennifer Gilchrist.
In Colley’s play, Jan and her husband Greg rent out a remote farm house to aid jan’s recovery from a nervous breakdown. Their serenity is disrupted by the local farmer George who revels in gruesome ghost stories and odd behaviour- along with the arrival of Greg’s malevolent sister, Laura. Strange occurrences begin and suspense builds up as spine chilling shocks intermingle with deadly humour. A nightmare unfolds that keeps audiences fully engaged.
The play is a four hander with the cast comprising Lani Crooks as the mentally fragile Jan Sanderson, George Gleeson as her seemingly very devoted husband George, the difficult to like Laura Sanderson, Jan’s sister in law, played by Natalija Karna, and quirky farmer George Willowby played by Robert Mason.
The set has been designed by Bill Ayers and Jim Farrow.
I’LL BE BACK BEFORE MIDNIGHT runs until September 1, 2018 at the Guild Theatre, Walz Street, Rockdale. Performances are Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm as well as matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm.
