SPECTRUM Theatre’s latest showcase of local talent took its opening night audience on an interesting journey of love and betrayal last Friday.
The intimate seating of the theatre brought the audience both physically and emotionally closer to the play, touching on themes not uncommon in today’s world.
Divorce Me, Darling follows the story of career-driven divorce attorney Amelia Conway, who has just marked 15 years of marriage with husband Jonathan Bentley.
Despite never forgetting gifts for every big occasion, Jonathan’s roving eye has not gone unnoticed by his wife.
Arriving on Amelia’s office doorstep the same day is young bimbo Tina, who asks for an annulment so she can marry a married man.
As Amelia discovers the young woman intends to marry her very own husband, the humourous turmoil kicks off.
Rising talent Morgan Levingston convincingly portrayed Jonathan, a character at least 20 years his senior, and maintained character throughout the entire performance.
Spectrum regular Darian Mercuri was consistent in his quirky character’s tics and twitches – a skill which often drops off when an actor thinks no one is watching.
Sinead Charles’ excitement and enthusiasm for the play was evident in her brilliant smile and her confidence on stage.
Tickets for the April 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21 performances are still available and can be purchased via Paperbark Merchants.
