Plenty of laughs on the cards


Life has a habit of sneaking up on us — or rather, sneaking away from us — while we’re busy earning money, paying bills, doing the shopping, the washing, the cooking. That ticking you’re hearing isn’t just the kitchen clock!

For the ladies in Frankston Theatre Group’s next production Exit Laughing, the highlight of their week — indeed, their lives — is the weekly card night, and when Mary, one of this close-knit group, dies, what can they do? They decide to have one last game at their traditional venue — Connie’s house. Then Millie — sweet, but not terribly worldly — steals their friend’s ashes from the funeral home to join this last game and things get complicated.  Add to this mix Connie’s university-age daughter who’s been stood up on a first date and a policeman with a secret, and you have a recipe for a great night full of laughs and one or two tender tears.

Directed by FTG life member Keith Gledhill and featuring Kerry Hollier, Sophie Daddo-Langlois, Heather Jean-King, Grace Painter, and Jack Ellis-Barr, Exit Laughing is a great night out for your Christmas break-up.

This is FTG’s final production for 2018 and will be held at the Mount Eliza Community Centre in cabaret style.  So grab your friends, a bottle or two and some tasty nibbles and book yourself a table.
