Stirling Theatre is starting its 50th year with a farewell performance, as seen in the play The Actress, with a famous stage performer deciding to retire.
Written by Peter Quilter and directed by Carryn McLean, the touching comedy is set in a dressing room with the family of Lydia Martin – including her ex-husband, theatre colleagues and fiancé – wanting to wish her well.
Humour and biting comments come thick and fast but, despite Lydia’s determination to retire, she realises she still has a few issues to sort through in her mind.
The Actress plays at 8pm February 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 with 2pm matinees February 9 and 16. Tickets are $22, $20 concession – book through Morris News on 9446 9120 or at www.trybooking.com/BFNMJ.
