Com­edy with un­der­tones

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Stage -

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.
