CARLISLE res­i­dent Krysia Wiechecki is about to take part in an ex­tra­or­di­nary af­fair – on stage.

Her lat­est play looks at what hap­pens when a man’s best friend dreams about his wife, on the night she has the ex­act same dream about him.

The idea is ex­plored in Mar­ble at Mar­loo Theatre, writ­ten by famed Ir­ish play­wright Ma­rina Carr and di­rected by Bel­mont res­i­dent Rod­ney van Gronin­gen.

Art and Ben work for the same com­pany, their lives con­trolled by board meet­ings and high-level pre­sen­ta­tions.

They have been friends since child­hood and both have beau­ti­ful stay-at-home, self-in­dul­gent wives.

Art idly tells Ben he has dreamt of his friend’s wife as a blonde, wildly-ful­fill­ing sex­ual part­ner in a room lined with mar­ble and dec­o­rated with mar­ble stat­ues.

Dis­turbed, Ben then finds his wife Cather­ine, played by Wiechecki, has had a sim­i­lar dream about Art.

“It’s a very in­tense and won­der­fully chal­leng­ing role with large emo­tional jumps that oc­cur quite quickly – and it’s im­por­tant to make them re­al­is­tic, in­ter­est­ing and mean­ing­ful to the au­di­ence,” Wiechecki said.

“It’s also a chal­lenge cre­at­ing strong, re­al­is­tic re­la­tion­ships in a drama such as this.”

Mar­ble plays at 8pm on Fe­bru­ary 23, 24, 28, March 2, 3, 7, 9 and 10, with 2pm mati­nees on Fe­bru­ary 25 and March 4. Tick­ets are $22 for adults $20 for con­ces­sion – book on 6270 1465 or at www.try­book­ SUMS. A dream changes ev­ery­thing for happy cou­ple Cather­ine (Krysia Wiechecki) and Ben (Peter Clark) in
