The team that brought you Shirley Valentine and Always…Patsy Cline, now brings a show that’s been a hit in 28 countries around the world.
MY BRILLIANT DIVORCE sees star Mandi Lodge, award winning director Denny Lawrence (AFI and ACCTA Awards) and HIT Productions (25 years touring Australia) again combining their talents. This achingly funny story follows Angela, who seeks to ‘take charge’ and take on the world after a divorce that she was the last to see coming! A funny, contemporary story with heart.
Mandi Lodge says she’s enjoying the challenge of taking on a challenging issue using wit and honesty.
“Our show works as either a funny, heartful time in the theatre or it can give people a chance to recognize the ups and downs of divorce and hopefully feel a bit better about those moments and laugh at some of the sillier stuff that goes on,” says Mandi.
With 1 in 3 Australian marriages ending in divorce, this is a highly relevant topic that is skillfully tackled by leading playwright Geraldine Aron. The West End Production of the show starred Dawn French (Vicar of Dibley, French and Saunders) and was nominated for a coveted Olivier Award as Best Entertainment.
