Repertory Rumblings Issue 10 (2021)

Secret Bridesmaids' Business Announcement

We would like to thank all our Patrons and volunteers for all their support in finally getting to stage the extremely successful production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap

Repertory Invercargill are proud to present next month our final major production for 2021, Secret Bridesmaid's Business by Elizabeth Coleman and directed by Victoria Mills. Victoria has assembled a stellar cast to stage this comedy/drama at Repertory House from the 17th-20th November. Ticketing details will be available soon so keep an eye on all our social media platforms.

Secret Bridesmaid's Business is set the night before Meg Bacon’s (Sophie Worner) wedding. She’s waited thirty-three years for this and she knows she’s going to love every moment! She’s gathered her mum and her bridesmaids together for one last night of girlie fun.

While the bride prepares for the biggest day of her life and her mum Colleen (Angela Newell) fusses over ribbons and shoe fabrics, Meg’s bridesmaids, Lucy (Maggie Pirie) and Angela (Hannah Kennedy), stumble upon some information that has the potential to shatter Meg’s dream. Should they tell or not tell?

In the hilarious yet painful push and pull that follows, Lucy and Angela discover that sometimes there is no right answer when it comes to doing what’s best for your friend.

In true Australian style Elizabeth Coleman’s Secret Bridesmaid's Business is a funny play about serious issues like truth, loyalty, denial, sex, love, the meaning of marriage, female friendship and the plight of Modern Woman with a biological clock that just won’t keep up with the times!
