After Dinner

Season Finished
Dunstan Playhouse

PRESENTED BY STATE THEATRE COMPANY

By Andrew Bovell

A knock out comedy from master playwright Andrew Bovell (The Secret River, Things I Know To Be True) following five eccentric lonely hearts in a 1980s pub bistro. Get ready to party like its 1989.

Paula, Dympie and Monika are, in the words of Roxette, Sweden’s greatest export, “dressed for success”. Primped, preened and ready to rumble, they are up for anything and, perhaps, anyone. Except that is for Stephen and Gordon, the alpha male and nerdy no-hoper at the table next to them.

Over the course of the night bad dance moves are on display, friendships are tested and the map of the human heart is crisscrossed. The brilliant Nathan Page (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, The 39 Steps) leads an hilarious cast including Jude Henshall (Mr Burns, A Post-Electric Play, Comedy of Errors), Elena Carapetis (Summer of the Seventeenth Doll), Ellen Steele (Angelique, Girl Asleep) and Rory Walker (The Popular Mechanicals) After Dinner will leave you rolling in the aisles.
