DEATH IN BOWENGABBIE

Date: 2nd August 7:30pm 2016

Venue: Esperance Civic Centre

Oscar has made a new life in the city, escaping the shadow of his country town past. He has a fiancee, a new job, a fresh start. And then a series of mysterious deaths in the family keep calling him back to Bowengabbie, and to its bizarrely festive funerals. Is love brinigng him back? Or is something more sinister at play...?

A big, black, tender-hearted comedy about love, loss and the mourning after...

This is a brilliant new Australian play that is certain to delight your audiences. It could be subtitled 'Five funerals and a Wedding' as it is not only laugh-out-loud funny, but there is romance, drama, mystery and intrigue. And the twist at the end is a wonderfully surprising treat.

Its themes also make it perfectly suited and relevant for regional audiences. It has charmed audiences and critics alike, receiving most recently a 4 1/2 star rave review from the Herald Sun. The production features a stellar central performance from Byrce Youngman playing dozens of characters with ligtning precision. It is an incredibly compact touring production, with the set created simply with chalk and a few suitcases, and the production has already completed two succesful seasons (in Perth and Melbourne).

Price: $20 - $30

Tickets avaliable online at http://www.esperanceciviccentre.com/ or at the Esperance Visitor Centre.
