Black Swan State Theatre to Present MIDSUMMER (A PLAY WITH SONGS), Nov 9-24

October 17
7:25 PM 2013

BLACK SWAN State Theatre Company presents Midsummer (A Play with Songs) by David Greig & Gordon McIntyre, running 9 to 24 November 2013.

Helena (Georgina Gayler) is a divorce lawyer who can't keep her hands off other women's husbands. Bob (Brendan Hanson) is a small time crook who is getting far too old to be on the wrong side of the law. They meet in a bar on a Friday night. They have nothing in common and should never sleep with each other. But they do.

Their one night stand turns into a crazy and wonderful weekend full of ruined weddings, bags of money, car chases, Japanese rope bondage, sex and stubborn hangovers.

Punctuated by devious and wistful songs and with a live four piece-band, Midsummer (A Play with Songs) suggests that anyone can reinvent themselves and take their life in a new direction, if they only chose to do so.

"Deliriously funny and a pure delight - what better way to sail into the merry season? Anyone who has ever had a bad date or a light-hearted dance through a madcap evening, in fact, anyone who likes a laugh and a song will love this. Enjoy." - Kate Cherry, Artistic Director, BLACK SWAN State Theatre Company
