WHAT if you could create your idea of the perfect woman – write down all the qualities you seek in a woman and then she appears?

That’s exactly what happens in Norm Foster’s The Love List running at Harbour Theatre this month.

The comedy, directed by multi-award winning Kirstie Francis, stars Edgewater actor Jarrod Buttery as Bill, a lonely statistician living in a very untidy apartment. His best friend Leon has just the thing to jolt Bill out of his middle-age funk – a gift membership to a dating service that guarantees 100 per cent satisfaction.

All Bill has to do is list his 10 most desirable attributes in a mate and Leon will drop it off with a mysterious gypsy woman.

Soon enough, Bill is visited by Justine who acts as if they’ve been living together for years. Though taken aback, he finds her attractive, inviting, smart and confident – everything he listed the night before.

Stranger still, she seems to know everything about him.

The Love List plays at 7.30pm, September 21-24 and 2pm September 25.
