Haven, is blackmailed into allowing two reporters, Liz Imbrie and Mike Connor, posing as guests, to cover the wedding for Spy, a scandal magazine. However, they find much more than they’d anticipated among this niche of high society. Based on the 1939 romantic comedy The Philadelphia Story by Philip Barry, High Society is not only the show’s title but the show’s first song, in which the Lord family’s amazing staff sets the scene on a waterfront estate in Oyster Bay. Come join the Lords for a weekend of fun and games and music. If you enjoyed the play, you’ll love the musical!

Company Website: http://www.mordialloctheatre.com

Synopsis: Written in 1960, and undoubtedly one of Australia’s favourite plays, THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR explores the universal theme of father–son conflict against the background of the beery haze and the heady, nostalgic sentimentality of Anzac Day. It is a play to make us question a standard institution – Anzac Day, the sacred cow among Australian annual celebrations – but it is the likeability and genuineness of the characters that give the play its memorable qualities: Alf, the nobody who becomes a somebody on this day of days; Mum, the anchor of the family; Hughie, their son, with all the uncertainties and rebelliousness of youth; and Wacka, the Anzac, with his simple, healing wisdom.

Synopsis: Handsome Mr Darcy meets engaging Elizabeth Bennet and is as much drawn by her charms as he is put off by her family’s lower social standing.

Jane Austen’s much-loved classic love story is brought vividly to life in this new stage adaptation, where dances abound, marriages are sought and made, and pride is finally overcome. Pride and Prejudice, the play, is replete with all the familiar, comical characters of the novel. It boasts period costumes, music and witty dialogue, where the deserving are rewarded, the self-serving are put in their place and love is triumphant.

Synopsis: La Comtesse a self-assured member of Parisian high society fends off a list of suitors, who attempt to seduce her with a can-can of flatteries, bad poetry and jealous outbursts. Meanwhile devilishly charming Moliere wannabe playwright, Vicomte seduces La Comtesse with mock adulation and a sneak peak of his new satire, coincidentally, ‘School For Wives Criticised’. How will she react to Vicomte’s cheeky critique that ironically holds up a mirror to the small town world of La Comtesse? Do not miss this new MFT take on these wonderful plays … in this highly physical production. Featuring slapstick and buffoonery, these brilliant examples of 17th century French wit and ridicule are sure to knock you off your chaise longue.

Synopsis: A boy finds himself separated from his family in the unfamiliar streets of a war- torn city. He takes refuge in a deserted house and in the darkness his bravado crumbles.

Into his life steps Anna – older and street smart. She starts to tell him a story that she vaguely remembers from her own childhood. And so begins a journey into the shifting, shimmering world of ogres, princes, singing bones, foolish lads and wolf-mothers.

In the face of adversity Stories in The Dark brings hope. It explores the power of storytelling, mingling the humour, magic and earthy wisdom of folk tales with the hard-edged story of conflict and the struggle to survive. It’s a story you will not want to miss.


Other Information: In consideration of other patrons and cast, children under the age of three will only be admitted to the theatre for the matinee performance.

Synopsis: Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other’s lives. THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of 33 years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another—through
advice and raucous repartee—to get through the
challenges that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends rally ‘round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction.

Synopsis: This powerful American drama was made famous by the movie of the same name, starring Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher and Danny De Vito. Convicted felon, Randle McMurphy charms his way onto a psych ward thinking it's surely the easy way to serve out a six-month prison term. There he encounters Nurse Ratched, a disciplined and extremely focused agent of authority. Randle uses his charisma and humour to breathe life into the ward and lead the other patients into open rebellion. But McMurphy's revolution against Nurse Ratched and everything she stands for quickly turns from sport to a fierce power struggle—with shattering results. Having won five Academy Awards, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is now a dramatic play which continues to delight audiences with the same tension, humanity and unforgettable characters.
