My Brilliant Divorce
presented by HIT Productions
From the team that brought you Shirley Valentine and Always…Patsy Cline, now comes a show that’s been a hit in 28 countries around the world. My Brilliant Divorce sees star Mandi Lodge, award winning director Denny Lawrence and HIT Productions again combining their talents.
This time to present a funny heartfelt story about Angela who is trying to take charge after a divorce from her lying, cheating husband. A divorce that shocked her… but everybody else she knows, knew she was hurtling towards. A funny, contemporary story with heart. With 1 in 3 Australian marriages ending in divorce, this is a highly relevant topic that is skillfully tackled by leading playwright Geraldine Aron. The West End Production of the show starred Dawn French and was nominated for a coveted Olivier Award as Best Entertainment.
Mandi Lodge says she’s enjoying the challenge of taking on a challenging issue using wit and honesty. ‘As with any upheaval, people can find funny things happen amongst the drama and it is those lighter moments that help us get through and find perspective.’ ‘Our show works as either a funny, heartful time in the theatre or it can give people a chance to recognize the ups and downs of divorce and hopefully feel a bit better about those moments and laugh at some of the sillier stuff that goes on’ said Mandi.
The hilarious and moving story of Angela, recently deserted by her husband for a younger woman, as she sets out to survive and enjoy a life on her own. In a world of surly solicitors, ‘Lonely Hearts’ dates, help line counselors and a myriad of self-diagnosed diseases, does Angela fight to keep her husband… or just move on? Angela is angry and confused, sometimes ready to feel joyfully liberated and move on, other times hopeful for reconciliation and reluctant to sign the divorce papers.
