As we all know David is one of Australias most famous exports in the writing industry and even more exciting is the fact that he now lives on the Sunshine Coast. It is with great pride and pleasure that Bats bring to the coast one of his very popular plays, " Money and friends".
Would you lend a friend $10,000?
Would you hesitate and ask yourself, " What's in it for me? How good is this friend really? Would they do the same for me?". The award-winning play 'Money and Friends' which opens at Bats theatre this month conjures up these dilemmas and more when Peter, (played by Dennis Coleman), is sued by the bank because of his brother's bad debts. He stands to lose everything including his holiday house at Crystal Inlet where the play is set, unless he can come up with the appeal money. Surrounded by four wealthy couples who also live at Crystal inlet in the Summer to escape the monotony of their harbourside views throughout the year, it would appear that financial aid was imminent when neighbour and friend,Margaret, (Susie Pritchard) asks them to return some of the loyalty and friendship Peter has unconditionally handed to them over the years.
Will his friends (who spend most of their holidays boasting about their wealth), offer him the money? That is the $10,000 question! In the past Peter has always been a good listener. Now with devastating financial worries and the realisation that it may be his last Summer at the inlet, Peter decides to tell them exactly what he thinks of them. And it's not all that pleasant.
Directed by Nancy Kinmond, the cast also includes some Coast favourites including Patrick Buick and Cheryl Cope.
