After ten years Dead Funny is as fresh as a Daisy.  The Daisy being Daisy Slade, central character in the hit comedy.

Last weekend audiences at The Indee at Eumundi roared with laughter and acclaimed it the best comedy for many a moon.  "Hugely funny.  "I didn't stop laughing.  "I'll be telling everyone, it's the funniest, were the tenor of the comments.  

With one of the best ensemble casts around, this play raises the bar for true comedy.  Sandy Luscombe plays the deliciously urbane Daisy, Marion  Johnson is Pru, the avaricious daughter and Sharon Ward is Terrie, the daughter seeking happiness.  Debra Pitura is Sheila, the plumber who comes to stay and Lexi Kehl is Terrie's daughter Gina, while Richard Luscombe is Noonan Tinburn, the Daddy Warbucks of the story.

Just three performances to go.  7.30 this Friday and Saturday and 5pm Sunday.  Tickets $20, concessions $18, Sunday $18.  5472 8200

Dead Funny is a comedy right out of the box.

It's the tale of a most unusual family that takes everything in its stride.  The tenth anniversary revival of Dead Funny will open The Indee's 2011 program of plays to laugh by.

When premiered in 2001, Dead Funny won no less than fifteen awards, including Best Play, Best New Script and Best Comedy.  The play has since had seasons in Queensland and interstate.

Peopled by an exceptional cast it features Sandy and Richard Luscombe, Marion Johnson, Debra Pitura, Sharon Ward and Lexi Kehl.

When a mature-aged sister, strongly tipped for spinsterhood, suddenly lands a very rich fiance and takes him to meet her family which she hasn't bothered about in years, the wheels start to fall off the cart.  Things then go from bad to hilarious.
