Nothing is as it seems

Sir (Geri Jones) with the Sisters of Celibacy.
Sir (Geri Jones) with the Sisters of Celibacy.

Is this stranger all that he seems?

Is he less than he seems? Is he more than he seems? Or is it just that his costume is coming apart at the seams?

All will be revealed to patrons of A Characteristic Quest at the Fish Trap Theatre at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

The comedy with several catchy songs is just the ticket to warm a winter�s evening, and already half the tickets for the �gala� opening night, (Thursday, June 11), which include a complementary drink and nibblies after the show, are sold.

Join Sir Peter the Pious (Dr Stephen Sun), Sir Frederick the Fearless (Michael Rogers) and a plethora of knights and fair (or slightly soiled!) maidens as they strive to defeat the Welsh marauders, maintain their chastity and find Sir a characteristic to add to his name.

A night time romp in the ladies� bedchamber and Sir Hamish battling a severe stomach upset add more fun to the evening.

A Characteristic Quest, written by siblings Carole Dhu and Geri Jones, had its world premiere season in 2006.

Dhu said no horses were harmed during rehearsals.

�But sadly, just before rehearsals started, the knights did capture the world�s last living dragon, which was promptly slaughtered and butchered and therefore does not appear in the show,�� she said.
