Black Comedy in Natural Causes at Woy Woy
Woy Woy Little Theatre on the NSW Central Coast begins celebrations of its 50th year with Natural Causes, a black comedy by Eric Chappell, from February 24, 2012.
Vincent is a professional suicide merchant employed by Exodus, assisting people to “move on”. He is contracted to assist Celia, who has wanted a suicide pact with her husband since her wedding day. But things don’t go according to plan and even innocent bystanders and the pot plant are not safe.
Director Penny Dilworth says, "I am very pleased to be able to bring this very funny play to our patrons to begin our 50th year celebrations. Natural Causes is an unusual comedy; it is very cleverly written, succeeding in turning a taboo subject like suicide into a black comedy with a touch of the thriller for good measure."
The cast features Marc Calwell (Walter), Terry Lay (Vincent), Caitlin Shaw (Angie), Christine Vale (Celia) and Jillian Logan (Mrs Withers).
Performances are at The Peninsula Theatre, cnr Ocean Beach Rd & McMasters Rd Woy Woy.
