PLAY EX­AM­INES PIECES OF PUZ­ZLE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Stage -

EAST Vic­to­ria Park res­i­dent Danni Close is start­ing 2015 by tak­ing to the stage in the in­ci­sive and witty fam­ily drama Jig­saws.

Writ­ten by Jen­nifer Rogers and di­rected by Adam Salathiel, the show opens in Fe­bru­ary and is the first in a year of all-Aus­tralian plays at the Old Mill The­atre to com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of the Gal­lipoli land­ing.

Jig­saws is set in Perth in the late 1980s and is about three gen­er­a­tions of women in the same fam­ily where life seems like a jig­saw puz­zle: some­times the pieces fit, some­times they don’t and of­ten it’s in­com­plete.

Jig­saws ap­pealed to Close be­cause it
