Jasango Theatre are back with a bang this winter with a new production of Geraldine Aron’s hilarious My Brilliant Divorce.
Following their astounding success with Bombshells - including a two-year tour of Ireland, a summer residency at Fota House, and an American tour culminating in awards for Best Play and Best Ensemble in the 2010 Bethlehem Press Awards - Jasango are on track for another hit with this wittily observant and achingly funny play.
Meet Angela Lipsky, once half of Angela and Max, the world’s happiest couple. That was before Max (affectionately nicknamed Roundhead ) unexpectedly dumps her and runs off with Rosa, a young Mexican woman who barely speaks a word of English!
Join Angela on her poignant and hilarious journey as she rebuilds her life, finding herself adrift in a sea of weird sexual encounters, sneaky solicitors, phone-in counsellors, a bad case of hypochondria, and the spectre of poverty. We follow her progress from messy marital break-up to a full divorce. Along the way we meet an array of extraordinary characters. These include daughter Vanessa, foreign cleaning ladies Meena and Leena, Ms Chang, Max/Roundhead, Bibi from Brooklyn New York, Dr Stedman, Jake the Vietnam Veteran, Finlay the slightly camp Londoner, Mr Glute the chemist, Mr Tripp, Julie, Sylvie, Melody-Ann, Dr Epstein, and many others.
My Brilliant Divorce comes to Mullingar Arts Centre, tonight, Friday November 4. Tickets are priced at €15 and €12.
