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.
