The Things Good Men Do, by award-winning young British playwright Dan Muirden, premieres at Sydney’s Tap Gallery this April with an appropriately fresh, young cast and production team.
The play and the locally trained team behind it (new production company Come Again Jnr) offers a unique interpretation of relationships and the moral dilemmas that every person faces.
Nick is a reformed womaniser who is fast approaching thirty and has fallen head-over-heels for the girl he wants to marry and have kids with. But then a dark little fling he’d rather forget comes back to threaten everything. For the first time he understands that a picture-perfect, middle-class life might not be a given. How far will he go to keep himself in the game that everyone else seems to be playing?
The play features an all star cast of bright, talented and resourceful young actors that includes Chad Richards as Nick, Anna James as Lucy, Chris Leaney as Joe, Jeremy Just as Rich and The Counselor and Stephanie Pick as Adriana.
Dan Muirden’s debut full length play is a dark comedy set in present day, twenty something, professional London. He is the writer of Invisible Storms and his one-act piece Lovely Couple was short listed for the Westminster Prize at Soho Theatre and he currently writes for BBC Television and Radio.
The Things Good Men Do plays at the TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst from April 27 until May 8 and is directed by Nicole Selby, currently Assistant Director at the Ensemble Theatre with design by Elliot Glass.
