The One

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Weekly Life -

King said the re­sult was like a sav­age fever dream that was dark, bluesy and a lit­tle like be­ing at a mu­sic gig.

“We do a lot of talk­ing to mu­sic; a lot of the sto­ry­telling is done on mic with the gui­tar un­der­neath,” she said.

“It has that bluesy mu­sic gig vibe but it’s also funny in parts, heart­break­ingly sad and goes a bit wild.”

King, an ECU grad­u­ate who has stud­ied act­ing in New York, said the piece was a boy meets girl story where ev­ery­thing was go­ing fine un­til one day he de­cided she was ‘the one’.

“In our cul­ture, for what­ever rea­son, when you de­cide they’re ‘the one’ you must pro­pose and marry them,” Kind said.

“Therein lies the un­rav­el­ling of their re­la­tion­ship be­cause she just doesn’t see that there’s any point and looks at the grim his­tory that mar­riage has come from.

“They come to a head and try to get over it, but it’s wedged such a di­vi­sion be­tween them.”

This will be King’s third year at Su­bi­aco Theatre Fes­ti­val fol­low­ing her per­for­mance in The Lit­tle Mer­maid and pro­duc­ing Mov­ing On Inc.

Other pro­duc­tions in the Su­bi­aco Theatre Fes­ti­val 2017 pro­gram in­clude 10,000, Heart Lines and

The Great Ri­dol­phi.
