IT’S ALL GREEK AT THE OLD MILL
ASCOT financial adviser and Aquinas College alumnus Rex Gray will take to the stage in the sequel to 2014’s comedy It’s All Greek To Me at the Old Mill Theatre this month.
Perth playrwright Noel O’Neill penned a follow-up featuring the Planks, a GreekEnglish family living in 1960s London.
The family returns in It’s All Greek To Me Too! with family patriarch Nicky finding himself in a spot of drama.
After becoming matchmaker for former girlfriend Circe and cousin Stavros, the newlyweds moved to Greece but began struggling after a few months.
Circe, after being disappointed by the conditions in Greece – with no hot water, no TV and a house occupied by a goat and chicken – returns to London and puts a curse on Nicky.
With Christmas on its way, little money, a pregnant daughter and a suicidal wife, Nicky must find a way to get the curse lifted.
Gray plays the crooked clairvoyant Andronikus and said the character was no different to before.
“He’s still a charlatan who preys on the supervision system of his gullible Greek clients,” he said.
“Nicky is not sure he believes in him but goes along with the con just in case.”
Gray has a range of theatre roles under his belt with the Old Mill Theatre but said he was looking forward to stepping back into Andronikus’s shoes.
“I wanted to take part in It’s All Greek To Me Too!, the first was so funny but also left some questions unanswered,” he said.
