Essendon Theatre Company has found "a good man"

If you’re someone who enjoys their comedy on the dark side, or you’re simply a fan of quality local theatre, the Essendon Theatre Company’s latest production is coming up later in November.

Essendon Theatre Company will be presenting “A Good Man”. That’s the cast in the image above, and here’s a synopsis of what you can expect…

“It’s a hot Summer’s day at the Good Shepherd Funeral Parlor and Martin Lamb, the mortician, is presiding over the wake of the late Walter Porteus. His dream of a perfect wake is undermined by his son Jimmy, whose interests are more amatory than funereal, and by the conniving, contentious Porteus family members, who are already clashing over the will.

To further inflame matters, the air conditioning breaks down and the wrong body turns up in the casket. Then a mysterious mourner makes an appearance and a valuable piece of jewelry disappears. When the air conditioning repairman pulls a gun and decides to hold them all hostage, things really start to get interesting in this hilarious black comedy.”

As regular fans of Essendon Theatre Company productions will know, there are only a limited number of shows scheduled in a compact two-week season. This production is no different, with the season comprising just seven performances including one Sunday matinee:

22 November – 25 November & 29 November – 1 December 2018
Thursday, Friday and Saturday Performances at 8pm
Sunday Matinee at 2pm

Doors open 30 minutes prior to the show commencing.

All performances be held at the Community Centre which is in Bradshaw Street (off Buckley Street) in Essendon.
