By Robert Hewett. The Theatre on Chester, Epping (NSW). Director: Kaye Lopez. July 29 – August 20, 2011.
Lives are flung out of orbit in this series of inter-connected monologues (almost). The seismic cause and effect impact of a single piece of idle gossip is at the heart of the play, originally seen as a solo performance by Jacki Weaver across Australia and North America.
Resonating comedy and human tragedy are intricately woven through the play, and captured effectively in Theatre on Chester’s production.
A woman attacks and accidentally kills the blonde she mistakenly believes is her estranged husband’s mistress in a case of mistaken identity.
