Upcoming Show

MTG Christmas Day

MTG Upcoming Show at the Redland Museum

 CHRISTMAS DAY” by Claire Haywood is a black comedy, laced with the pain of estranged family relationships. It brings to the stage outrageous, flawed but lovable characters who push each other to the limits. Two sisters come together to celebrate Christmas with their father and stepmother. The family reunion is thrown into chaos by the unexpected arrival of their mentally ill mother. Kate, a successful public figure, is forced to confront the past and her deepest fears. It is a play about suppression, emotional inheritance and letting go of the past.”

Alf, the father (50s) is a fiercely patriotic, working-class battler. He is a returned soldier, frustrated in his job, who clings to the ANZAC tradition and its belief system as almost a sacred right.

Mum (50s) is the classic, conservative stay-at-home wife and mother of the era, committed to its patterns and attitudes but shrewdly observant. She is no-one’s fool.

Hughie (20s) is caught between affection, embarrassment and pride for his very working-class family and the challenges of progressive ideas that he has come up against at university, a conflict that is encapsulated by a relationship with fellow student Jan.

Jan (20s) from a well-to-do family, she is intelligent, progressive, and inadvertently insensitive and patronising to Hughie and his family.  She is a catalyst.

Wacka (60s) is Alf’s ex-military friend of many years standing.  Wacka says very little and rarely talks about either of the two World Wars he fought in and perhaps this is the key to his character.

Cast of The One Day of the Year will have the added advantage of working with highly-esteemed professional stage and screen actor Penny Everingham on character development.  A rare opportunity to polish your thespian skills!

Performances of The One Day of the Year will run from late April to mid-May.
