Tensions rise in Lyric show

LEONGATHA Lyric Theatre’s upcoming comedy, Neil Simon’s California Suite, presents four sets of guests who at different times all come to stay in the same hotel suite.
Four friends from Chicago come to stay in the last days of an extended, shared vacation. Tensions have escalated throughout their time together and erupt after a particularly, competitive doubles tennis match.
Mort (Laurie Martin) blames Stu (Mike Street) for his wife, Beth’s (Alison McIntyre) sprained ankle.
Stu’s wife, Gert (Laura Muranty), who likes to be the centre of attention at all times, orchestrates her own injury. Accusations fly and mayhem ensues in this very physical and hilarious final act of the production.
The four acts of this entertaining comedy will each have a different cast with 11 talented actors involved. Each act will also have a different director, with Daniel Lawrie responsible for Act 4 – Visitors from Chicago.
There will be five evening and two matinee performances at Mesley Hall from March 16 to 24. Tickets will be available from February 16, online at www.lyrictheatre.net.au or by phone 0490 525 482.

In character: Mike Street and Laurie Martin rehearse their roles as feuding friends, Stu and Mort, in Neil Simon’s comedy, California Suite, to be performed by Leongatha Lyric Theatre.
