TA­BLES TURNED IN RO­MAN­TIC COM­EDY

TASTE OF OWN MEDICINE FOR RE­VIEWER

Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

RE­VENGE is sweet in Gar­rick The­atre’s new pro­duc­tion 100 Lunches – A Gourmet Com­edy by Jack Sharkey and Leo W. Sears.

It’s di­rected by Leslie Lee, who has pre­vi­ously done the play at Northam’s Link The­atre and makes his de­but at the Gar­rick joined by his son, An­drew, who plays the wait­ers in swanky New York restau­rants.

“I was ap­proached to do it by a group from the Gar­rick who came to see it at Northam two years ago,” Leslie Lee said.

“This is a lovely lit­tle ro­man­tic com­edy, which is one of my favourites.”

100 Lunches… starts the morn­ing af­ter the open­ing night of the lat­est mur­der mys­tery by renowned play­wright Charl­ton Reynolds.

As usual, the­atre re­viewer Char­ity Starr gives Reynolds’ play a scathing re­view. This time she also shows up at the au­thor’s door, ask­ing for help in writ­ing a play of her own.

Reynolds agrees – but only if they can meet over a se­ries of lunches for which Starr must foot the bill.

The ploy is to soak her for a se­ries of ex­or­bi­tant tabs, en­joy New York’s finest meals and leave her with a stinker of a play based on his flawed guid­ance.

Starr, who’s se­cretly in love with Reynolds, ends up ex­pe­ri­enc­ing what it’s like to be re­viewed her­self af­ter her play is pro­duced.

Af­ter a run in Northam two years ago, Gar­rick The­atre has taken on 100 Lunches – A Gourmet Com­edy
