Comedy with undertones
DISADVANTAGE is turned into a side-splitting comedy with dark undertones, starring award-winning actress Kylie Isaia.
The Foreigner, penned by US playwright Larry Shue, is directed by Rob Warner. It’s at the Old Mill Theatre, South Perth, from August 3 to 18.
The story, set in rural Georgia, revolves around Charlie, who is shy and depressed about his wife’s illness.
His friend Froggy claims Charlie can’t talk because he’s a foreigner and doesn’t understand English.
Isaia plays Catherine Simms, the sharptongued, pregnant fiancée of Reverend David Lee. She was named best actress at the 2016 Hills Festival of Theatre and has received two best actress nominations at the annual Finley Awards.
Isaia has also performed with KADS, Marloo and Garrick Theatres in shows including Dangerous Liaisons,
Nunsense I and II and The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband.
