RELATED: The woman behind Turning Tables
BENDIGO Theatre Company's latest play paints a witty and humorous picture of a family unit to whom most could easily relate.
A small team of actors and production crew are premiering a locally written and produced play, Turning Tables by Sue Walker.
And it's very worthy of a night, or afternoon, out of the house.
Turning Tables depicts the story of the elderly and unwell Ettie Marney, who is ensuring her affairs are in order before she passes away.
Sibling rivalries and greed arises as Mrs Marney's family members scramble to control her and her fortune.
But Mrs Marney is already one step ahead and is more clever than her family give her credit for.
As time passes and the family farewells their beloved mother, secrets are revealed and relationships altered forever.
Most people could relate to the family dynamics within this script and audience members will also easily relate to a character within the play.
The actors conduct themselves with professionalism and have shown passion and care in bringing their characters, and indeed the whole package, to life for the very first time.
And it will surely not be the last we will see of Turning Tables.
It will make you laugh, it will make you groan, it might make you angry – and maybe even a little teary.
Turning Tables is on at the Bendigo Theatre Company, 15-17 Allingham Street, Golden Square, on May 10, 16 and 17 at 8pm and May 18 at 2pm.
