Looking for Love

16 Nov 2018 - 1 Dec 2018

By arrangement with Dominie Drama

 

Written by Raymond Hopkins

Directed by Ken Harris

After twenty-one years of marriage, James Beale walks out on his wife, Molly. Her best friend Fiona persuades her to try the “six-step miracle cure” for abandoned wives and she finds that it works! Not only does her husband want to come back, but she has two other suitors vying for her affection. The twists and turns, mistakes and misunderstandings on her road to recovery all add up to a hilarious evening’s entertainment.

"This was a show that entertained and was very warmly received. A great choice for a girls’ night out, and for lovers of old and new comedy." Kimberley Shaw, Stage Whispers, 26 November 2018

The Return

27 April 2018 - 12 May 2018

 

By arrangement with the author

Written by Reg Cribb

Directed by Britanny Isaia

A thug and his junior partner in crime take a late night train from Perth to Fremantle, menacing passengers along the way. For an hour they own the train. 

Riding the uneasy line between comedy and terror, The Return is a tautly-written study in peer pressure, anxiety and suppressed violence in a social class which is often silenced.

"The audience sat in absolute silence, mesmerised throughout this study in peer pressure, unease and repressed vehemence. This was one of KADS best plays in some time, and is sure to be put forward for theatre awards." Gordon the Optom, ITA Review, 27 April 2018

Kalamunda Here I Come

16 Feb 2018 - 3 Mar 2018

 

By arrangement with the author

Written by Noel O'Neill

Directed by Caroline McDonnell

Based in Dublin, circa 1999, Kalamunda Here I Come is a dark(ish) comedy which, through a series of flashbacks via eldest daughter Louise (Lulu), tells the story of a typical Northside Dublin family and their individual dreams and ambitions – or lack thereof.


A story which many ex-pats will relate to – Lulu is a young nurse who struggles with the decision to leave her family and move to the exotically named, mysterious “Kalamunda” to carve out her own niche in this world.

"Everyone there REALLY enjoyed themselves, with laugh out loud humour every couple of minutes, and some real depth performances." Gordon the Optom, ITA Review, 1 March 2018
