David Williamson's 'Sorting Out Rachel' now open at the Ensemble
Congratulations to David Williamson for last week's strong opening of his latest, Sorting Out Rachel.
When it comes to business, Bruce knows what to do. You've got to out-bite the sharks and twist a good deal before you get screwed. But as the years go by and his legacy starts to loom, his thoughts turn to his exasperated daughter, her social climbing husband, and his granddaughter, Rachel, who unfortunately takes after him. Perhaps it's time to make amends. Can Bruce solve his family issues without giving away a long-held secret?
The production is very strongly directed by Nadia Tass, and stars John Howard, Glenn Hazeldine, Chenoa Deemal, Jenna Owen, and Natalie Saleeba. It's a highly entertaining social comedy about legacy, entitlement, and making good on past relationships.
Sorting Out Rachel is playing at the Ensemble through to March 17. For more information and how to book, click here.
