By Rupert Holmes. Javeenbah Theatre, Gold Coast. Director: Nathan Schulz. January 16th – 31st, 2015.

Javeenbah has opened its 2015 season with an intriguing comedy-thriller from the pen of Rupert Holmes.  Nathan Schulz has assembled a great cast with a plot that has more twists than Chubby Checker!

Needless to say, it’s one of those plays “you had to be there” to understand.

Great performances from (a very supple) Sarah Cooke, David Fraser, Tahlia Jade and (understudy) Paul Del Gatto standing in for the leading man (Kit Sivyer).

A brilliant set and fantastic special effects really compliment the artistry of everyone connected with this production.

This play has everything to satisfy even the most discerning of patrons:  nicely packaged in a production where there are no “prima-donnas” but plenty of “would-be’s, if they could- be’s”.

There are, within the script, a number of “Adult” themes which some may find a bit raunchy but, in the context of the story, seem totally in keeping with the overall plot.

Accomplicehas set the bar very high for those who follow.........
