PARTLY IT'S ABOUT LOVE, PARTLY IT'S ABOUT MASSACRE

by Fiona Sprott

A darkly comic foray into the world of Love and Loss (of the self). Jezebel has arrived at the altar at last but her dress is stained with blood and the groom is in hospital. So what happened to the Good Old Days when she never had to negotiate the division of space in the bed, when nobody ever passed wind on the couch whilst she was eating dinner, when she never had to turn down the maintenance man for a quickie? Eternal Togetherness is feeling a bit too close for comfort!

"...a dark meditation on the tyrannies of romance, the conspicuous consummation of the bourgeois wedding and the fragility of the everyday self... Sprott has an ear for dialogue as strong as her nose for the zeitgeist." - Murray Bramwell, The Australian, 18 February 2002

"...a bloody mixture of menace and mirth... in a one-act show that links love, commitment and outrage." - Matt Byrne, Sunday Mail, 17 February 2002
