It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To)
By Elizabeth Coleman

RON: Good evening. At 10.23pm on January 24, my doctor gave me three months to live. By my calculations, that leaves me with exactly… 111 minutes. So Dawn’s invited the kids around for sausage rolls and Saladas. 

Gruff, well ordered, quintessentially Aussie family man Ron has 111 minutes left to live. In a final gesture, he hosts a family party. As the minutes tick away, the party unravels to reveal a dysfunctional family that’s outlandishly bizarre, yet utterly recognisable.

From the writer that brought you Secret Bridesmaids’ Business, Elizabeth Coleman’s deliciously funny play stars Henri Szeps (Robert from ABC’s iconic TV series Mother and Son).

This dark comedy is guaranteed to make you laugh… but the elbow jabbing at your ribs is sharper than expected.

 

A fast-moving funny black comedy dealing with your everyday dysfunctional family.
THE MANLY DAILY

So very funny.
