Black Swan State
Theatre Company presents
By Joanna Murray-Smith
1 – 17 July 2011
Ninety minutes can
feel like an eternity or pass in a heartbeat.
Isabel has exactly ninety minutes – no more, no less – to
persuade William, her ex-husband, to come back to her instead of marrying a
younger woman on Sunday. Are ninety minutes enough to get past the
recriminations and disappointments of ruined love and reignite the tender
bonds? Can Isabel, an art conservator, restore love the way she restores paintings?
Can she bring William and their marriage back to life? The clock is ticking.
With the razor sharp observations and rapier wit which Perth audiences enjoyed
in Joanna Murray-Smith’s Honour and The Female of The Species, this intimate,
deeply-felt and surprisingly funny play is by one of Australia’s most
successful contemporary playwrights.
“Ninety is a
beautiful observation of the fragility and resilience of marriage that
challenges traditional theatrical conventions.” Kate Cherry
