FOURPLAY presented by Factory Space Theatre Company @ Manly

FOURPLAY – Three innovative and adventurous short plays, by Suzanne Hauser, Sally Williams and Alex Broun, and then the Sydney Première of “Wellness: A social Justice Play” by Ella Arendelle. A throughly entertaining night of live theatre, very fast paced, and an absolute audience pleaser. ROZ RILEY has expertly directed her ensemble cast, providing the eight actors with multiple roles galore, in four delightful thought-provoking dramas.


(1) BETWEEN BAD RELATIONS by Alex Broun with additional evidence by Emma Willis:
An Obsession with Fame, and the importance of consequences, the magnificent Violin Concerto score that she dreamed into being. The handsome Violin Virtuoso with outstanding technical ability, who some six months later he finally performs the magnificent Violin Concerto, and then both instantly fall into lust, with multiple repercussions. So how can she be fully in love/lust with two people at the same time?
Witnesses called: Berthold, Cal, Lesley, Compton
Offences: Self-interest, Arrogance, Indecision

(2) RAIN by Suzanne Hauser:
An Obsession with Sex, manuscript filled with raw adultery and heartfelt morality issues all about a freshly impecunious married man and his mistress, and the multiple events that happen when his wife finally becomes pregnant. Of course the man loses all, but which of the two woman will win all, the mistress or the wife?
Witnesses called: Beatrice, Darrell and Alison
Offences: Lust, Deceit and Cowardice


(3) OPEN LETTER by Sally Williams with additional evidence by Emma Willis:
An Obsession with Death and with Dying, and the journey along the path to the end of your life on Planet Earth. Could the existence of a poison filled hypodermic syringe make any difference?
Witnesses called: Beatrice, Berthold, Cal, Compton
Offences: Secrecy, Betrayal, Murder

(4) WELLNESS by Ella Arendelle:
An Obsession with ‘Chocolate’ provides a life-affirming play about enjoying life, curvy women, and societal expectations for curvy women.
Witnesses called: Alison, Beatrice, Berthold, Cal, Darrell, Compton, Lesley
Offences: Judgment, Micro-aggressions, Ignorance
Presiding judge: Alana
