Delish Dinner Theatre

Event Date: 29-08-2009

‘Dinner and Drama at Delish' $60.00 per person 7:00p.m for 7:30p.m start Following the success of its Winemaker's Dinners, Delish of Erina is venturing into pastures new with ‘Dinner and Drama at Delish'. As well as an excellent 3-course dinner with a glass of Sparkling wine on arrival, the evening will include three 10-minute plays performed by award-winning local actors and playwrights. The Dinner: Three courses with a glass of Sparkling wine on arrival The Drama: The humorous and poignant drama tells the story of a long-married couple. In three short acts of 10 minutes each, we cover the relationship's beginning, middle and end. Writer/actors Terry Collins and Mike Jeffries are both keen on monologue as an effective way to tell a story, particularly within an intimate space such as Delish. In these three pieces they use this form to engage with the audience to tell the tale of Julia and John, a couple whose relationship, like everyone's, has its strengths and weaknesses. In the first act, Gym Slips, Terry's character Julia covers the beginnings of the relationship. Then, in Last Night, Terry and Mike come together to develop the rifts between Julia and her husband John (while poking fun at those who believe the monologue is dead). Finally, in A Really Useful Person, Mike's character John wonders whether calling on his young friend Ronald to assist him with his problem was such a good idea. The plays convey the joys and pain of a typical marriage - but all done with much humour! Gym Slips is a new play, specially written by Terry and Mike for this performance. Last Night has been adapted by them from Mike's entry into the 2009 Sydney Short and Sweet, where it was a semi-finalist. It was also performed as a Top 30 play in Singapore's Short and Sweet in July, and has been short-listed for Brisbane's Short and Sweet later this year. Finally, A Really Useful Person won awards for Mike and Terry for Best Script, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Production at the Central Coast's Short and Sweet in 2008. It was also short-listed for Singapore's Short and Sweet.
