Written by Rob Selzer (Professor of Psychiatry at Monash Uni) this fast-paced comedy features four players and switches from the present to the past and back again.
Betty and Barry Bishop are a power couple, he works as a senior broker in the family stock broking business, and she has a popular and influential lifestyle TV show called ‘Betty Perfect’ that has a huge following.
Everything in their life is ‘perfect’, and now Betty has decided they need a baby to make it all complete.
The problem is, they can’t seem to conceive, and Betty’s physician has referred them to Dr. Jack Glass, a Psychiatrist specialising in couples counselling.
The story unfolds as Jack talks to Zelda, his very experienced professional supervisor, about how his interactions with the Bishops over time have led to a very sticky situation. The play uses flashback scenes of Jack working with the Bishops to tell the tale, and as Jack relates the details to Zelda, we come to the present day, and then things get complicated.
The play has only been performed on a couple of occasions, generating extremely positive audience feedback, and offers a chance for CHATS to work with the playwright in polishing and presenting a cracking new Australian comedy.
Taking the stage in July 2021, tickets are available now.
