Weird happenings in paradise

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TUESDAY EXTRA -

the Twi­light Zone theme mu­sic and move The X Files to Coolum Beach, on the Sun­shine Coast, and you’ll get the idea of The Strange Calls. Barry Crocker plays Gre­gor, the town’s wild-eyed gate­keeper who has an en­cy­clo­pe­dic knowl­edge of Coolum and a love of vin­tage board games. Toby Truslove plays his un­wit­ting part­ner Con­sta­ble Toby Banks, a re­cently dis­graced city cop, who ar­rives in town to be­gin his new role on the night-duty desk in a derelict old car­a­van. Banks is a ra­tio­nal scep­tic; Gre­gor is a Be­liever. But once the sun goes down, weird things hap­pen in this slice of paradise. This odd cou­ple in­ves­ti­gate re­ports mer­maids are dat­ing po­lice­men and a ra­dio jin­gle has pos­sessed the soul.
