Spencer explores the fate of one gloriously dysfunctional Australian family through love, laughs and pain. This comedy performs at Riverlinks Westside on Tuesday 24 September from 7.30pm.
Spencer tells the story of a tight-knit family, led by single mum Marilyn and her three adult children, wayward daughter Jules, mouthy coulda been son Ben and AFL golden boy Scott.
This hilarious comedy tells the story of Scott, who’s preparing to meet his son, Spencer, he never knew existed. To help him prepare for the special occasion, his family comes together, with a surprise appearance from the father he barely remembers, the entire family is forced to work together.
Manager Performing Arts and Conventions at Riverlinks, Ken Cameron says, “Spencer is a very funny performance. It touches on how family can support us but also mess us up. It’s an authentic account of an Australian family.”
“Produced by the highly acclaimed theatre company, Lab Kelpie, Spencer has an impressive cast including, Jane Clifton (Prisoner) and Roger Oakley (Home & Away), as well as Fiona Harris, Lyall Brooks and Jamieson Caldwell,” said Mr Cameron.
Spencer employs classic Australian humour and explores the issues of self-acceptance and identity and asks us to consider how much our family defines who we are and whether we ever really grow up.
Patrons are invited to stay for some light refreshments and meet the cast after the show.
Tickets are available online or through the Riverlinks Box Office: 03 5832 9511.
