Triple treat on stage

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Film -

IR­ISH Theatre Play­ers re­turn to the stage next month, fol­low­ing suc­cess­ful sea­sons of The Big Casino and Big Mag­gie.

A Fes­ti­val of One Acts fea­tures three 45-minute works: W.A.G by Gemma Doorly, Over the Top by Rod­ney Quinn, and Dar­ren Dono­hue’s Voices in the Rub­ble.

W.A.G. takes the pop­u­lar acro­nym for ‘wives and girl­friends’ and is a black com­edy look­ing at a football player’s in­fi­delity.

Over the Top is set in World War I trenches, where four com­bat­ants from dif­fer­ent back­grounds grad­u­ally re­veal their rea­sons for be­ing there.

Ab­sur­dist com­edy Voices in the Rub­ble rounds out the trio by cap­tur­ing the ‘in­san­ity’ of mar­ried life.

Au­di­ences will be treated to a com­pli­men­tary drink on ar­rival and supper dur­ing the in­ter­val.

The sea­son runs Au­gust 6-15 at Ir­ish Club WA, Su­bi­aco, with all pro­ceeds from Au­gust 12 do­nated to char­ity The Claddagh As­so­ci­a­tion Inc. Tick­ets at www.try­book­ing.com/144224.
