When Dad Married Fury

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 18 February - 22 February 2014

By David Williamson

Watch out, because here comes the bride…

Incongruous brothers Ian and Ben are on their way to Sydney to visit their recently widowed father. Three big surprises are in store when they arrive at his 75th Birthday celebrations.

  • The ‘Old Man’ is worth $100 million.
  • He’s gone and married Fury, an American beauty queen half his age.
  • There is no pre-nup…

With his trademark wit and skilful blending of contemporary culture within the ageless framework of family greed, jealousy, love and expectation, Australia’s leading playwright David Williamson delivers another gripping play and his most memorable characters to date.

Is there more to the beautiful Fury than meets the eye? Is Alan the father he thinks he is? Do Ben’s loyalties lie with his wife, his dad or himself? Can Ian contain his greed long enough to get a signature on the right will? And who is to blame for the death of Ben’s father-in-law?

One thing is for certain: everything changed when Dad married Fury.

“Humorous one liners and comic scenes of greedy people in battle for their inheritance. It is pacey and entertaining and has some very funny moments.”Stage Milk

“If you want a good giggle you need to see this show. The dialogue is so strong it carries the play. It is fairly fast moving and very entertaining.” – Whats On Sydney
