Sunnybank Theatre Company

Sunnybank Theatre Company
Barefoot in the Park
June season


For two weeks in June, the Sunnybank Theatre Company (STG) made clever use of its intimate theatre on Mains Rd to recreate a tiny New York apartment and take audience members along for the bumpy ride of a newlywed couple.

Under the direction of Deidre Robinson a small but talented cast breathed life into words penned over 50 years ago but still getting laughs today.

Neil Simonís play Barefoot in the Park took the audience back to a time when Polaroid cameras were high-tech and ëwifeí was a job title.

Any venue offering a Riesling before the show, a Cornetto at interval and a cup of tea at curtain-down is definitely worth another visit.

Theatre-lovers can now look forward to STGís next production Pack of Lies, a drama by Hugh Whitemore, which runs from July 24 to August 8.

The play is set in the 1960s, when espionage came to London. A stranger arrives on their doorstep, supposedly from the police, and proceeds to coerce the Jacksons into allowing their house to be used as a surveillance post. Audiences will be captivated by this intriguing drama and the fascinating way the writer draws us into the lives of a family, whose suburban domesticity is confronted with such a compelling and intense situation.

Tickets $18-$25 at stg.org.au or phone the theatre on 3345 3964, Press Option 1 for bookings.
