Perth playwright Noel O’Neill has penned a follow-up featuring the Planks, a Greek-English family living in 1960s London.
They return in It’s All Greek To Me Too with family patriarch Nicky finding himself in a tricky situation.
Nicholls plays Katarina, a character she described as naïve.
“Some might say she’s a couple of roos short in the top paddock who is completely and wholeheartedly in love,” she said.
“The main challenge is getting the London accent down pat but I know I will do it.”
Previously performing with Phoenix Theatre, Nicholls has appeared in A Retailer’s Christmas and The Brain From Planet X.
“It’s All Greek To Me Too appealed because of Noel O’Neill’s script and direction and the fact it’s being staged at the Old Mill Theatre,” she said.
“It’s been a dream of mine since I came to Perth.”
O’Neill said the sequel was a result of the fun experienced by the cast and crew during the original It’s All Greek To Me.
“They literally asked me to write the sequel so we could all work together again and I just felt there could always be more,” he said.
Despite It’s All Greek To Me Too being a sequel, O’Neill said prior knowledge of the first play was not required.
It’s All Greek To Me Too will run from February 12-27 with a 2pm matinee on February 14 and 3pm matinee on February 21.
All proceeds from the 3pm matinee on February 21 will be donated to the South-West Bushfire Appeal.
A donation box will also be on hand for any people wishing to donate more to the appeal.
