I love theatre. I don’t care if it’s professional or amateur, big budget or small, I’m just always happy to be watching people up on stage telling me stories.
While I’m in Dubbo meeting my amazing new little nephew, I managed to catch The Wesley House Players and their production of Wanted: One Body! By Charles Dyer. This crazy little murder mystery set in the Barraclough mansion know as ‘Greenacres’ has got the actors talking in circles and in classic thriller tradition, accusing each other of murder…before they realise there’s nothing in the coffin but a few bricks!
The play was quite well-paced and very funny in places. Particular shout out to Mary Bullock playing the unassuming maid Mabel Middy, who controlled the scenes beautifully and delivered one-liners with real guts.
