Do first impressions count? ...  

Carbon Dating - an outstanding Australian theatrical experience exploring the quirky, sublime and ridiculous attempts of couples as they fumble their way through the first date...this award winning Australian comedy premieres at The Arts Centre Gold Coast from Tuesday 8 February 2011.  Following the preview season -- Carbon Dating tours South-East Qld across 11 venues, including the Nambour Civic Centre.

Carbon Dating is told through the eyes of 4 waiters. Taking the perspective of the onlookers, bizarre and unfortunate circumstances arise as we enjoy the antics of couple on the first date.

The play is co-produced by Gold Coast based theatre company -- Mercury's Wings Theatre Co. With assistance from The Arts Centre, this local company has been given this awesome opportunity to develop their audiences to a more for reaching community. Carbon Dating will tour out to Toowoomba, and reach as far north as Maryborough.

Carbon Dating is an outstanding Australian comedy written by Ron Elisha, and has received 4 Australian Writers' Guild Awards. The play explores themes of social acceptance, isolation and first impressions. The desire to find a suitable mate is an inherent urge of mankind. This play is fresh and hilarious, and provides audiences with a great night at the theatre.

Mercury's Wings is the first recipient of the Ignition funding. This project is made possible through the Regional Stages Funding, which supports the independent theatre sector on the Gold Coast. This program in particular is pleased to give the opportunity to export great theatre into surrounding regional audiences.
