A COMEDY staged by the Lieder Theatre Company in Goulburn aims to raise funds for multiple sclerosis research.
“Fire in the Basement” by Czech Playwright Pavel Kohout is billed as “a quirky and sardonic farce”, in which a newly-wed couple are interrupted on their honeymoon by a band of irreverent firefighters who invade their basement love-nest to fight a blaze.
Written in 1974 by Czech Playwright Pavel Kohout, known for his incisive, sardonic plays during Czechoslovakia’s Iron Curtain days, the eccentric story will be brought to life in Blake Selmes’ directorial debut for Lieder by actors Steve Routley, Muffy Hedges, Courtney McKenzie, Harrison Treble, Ben Pik and Scott Treble.
A limited two-week run at the popular Lieder Theatre will launch with a charity opening raising funds for multiple sclerosis research, in partnership with Trish MS Research Foundation.
The event will feature live music by local musician Greg Angus, drinks and nibbles donated by the Lewy’s Cafe, pre-show entertainment by circus artist Jack Bell, and the hilarious show itself.
