Civic to host When Dad Married Fury

A FURIOUSLY funny family stage comedy featuring one of Australia's favourite actors will soon take stage at the Ipswich Civic Centre.

The play, When Dad Married Fury, is written by well-known Australian playwright David Williamson and stars Gold Logie Award-winning Australian actor John Wood.

The story follows two brothers, Ian and Ben, who are on their way to Sydney to visit their recently widowed father Alan - played by Wood - for his 75th birthday celebrations.

But when the brothers arrive they are in for three big surprises: the 'old man' is worth $100 million, he's gone and married an American beauty queen half his age and there is no pre-nup.

With his trademark wit and skilul blending of contemporary culture within the ageless framework of family greed, jealousy, love and expectation, Williamson has delivered another hilarious but gripping play.

Wood said Williamson had an uncanny ability to tap into the Australian psyche and believed the playwright was at his peak.

"I think this play is a really great reflection of where the Australian society is at the moment," he said.

The performance will run for one evening only on Wednesday, September 4 at 7.30pm.
