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.
