Description

Classification

, ,

With singing, dancing, comedy and the joys of sheer honesty, Joanna Murray-Smith’s acclaimed play Bombshells is a journey from crisis to hilarity, via the thoughts of a group of women all linked by more than just their proximity to the edge; an aging cabaret singer at the end of her career, a nervous bride-to-be, an exhausted young mother, a widow with a yearning for the unexpected, a broken-hearted cactus lover, and a feisty teenage talent-quest competitor.

Joy, drama, crisis, fear, revelation – there are times where you have to remain cool and calm on the outside. The inside, meanwhile, is a flailing monologue of personal pep talks, perish-the-thoughts and perpetual panic. Bombshells strips back the façade of womanhood to reveal the things that sometimes we’d just love to say out loud.

Director Jordan Best
Cast Amy Kowalczuk, Lainie Hart, Sally Taylor, Kate Harris, Ella Buckley, Alice Ferguson

Each character is resilient and robust despite the setbacks, thwarted opportunities or feelings of rejection.
