Noosa Long Weekend fundraiser boasts Williamson play

NOOSA Long Weekend Festival will present Odd Man Out for four exclusive fundraiser performances at The J Theatre on March 23, 24 and 25.

Direct from a world premiere, sell-out season at the Ensemble Theatre in Sydney, these performances will honour David Williamson - the most produced playwright in the history of Australia (among his many other accolades across literature, theatre, film and television).

Named as one of Australia's living national treasures, Williamson and wife Kristin are synonymous with Noosa, having lived locally for many years and remain founding patrons of the Noosa Long Weekend Festival.

Directed by Mark Kilmurry (current Ensemble Theatre artistic director ), Australian actors of the finest calibre in Justin Stewart Cotta and Lisa Gormley, supported by a stellar cast, will delight audiences and fans with their riveting performances and bring to life this clever, witty and highly entertaining script.

It starts like a fairy-tale romance: Ryan tells Alice she has a beautiful smile, and suddenly he is asking her out. Alice has never met anyone like Ryan before: he's charming, forthright and painfully truthful.

She knows their relationship is moving way too fast, but there is something ridiculously attractive about this straight-talking man.

His bluntness may upset her family and friends, but when he asks her to marry him, she finds herself saying yes. As newlyweds, Alice discovers a side of Ryan she never knew existed - and becomes determined to fix his flaws, with ridiculous and disastrous results.

Tickets go on sale for these performances on Tuesday, January 24.
