Old fashioned melodrama to end the year
Lily, the Felon’s Daughter by Tom Taggart
Directors: Robert Comber and Col Kirkman
November 29 to December 15
Melodramas are an audience favourite and with Lily, the Felon's Daughter Maitland Repertory Theatre returns to end of year melodrama fun.
Lily, the Felon’s Daughter tells the story of our heroine Lily Fairweather, who is "pure as the driven snow" and of Compton, her weak but handsome sweetheart, and how the dastardly villain Craven Sinclair tries to thwart their plans for everlasting bliss.
Audience interaction is encouraged, so feel free to boo, hiss, cheer and swoon for the villain, hero and heroine. Seating is at tables of eight and you're welcome to bring your own nibblies and drinks to enjoy. Your ticket price includes a glass of bubbles or sherry on arrival and small Christmas treats with your complimentary tea and coffee at interval.
Approximately 2 hours 15 minutes including a 30 minute interval.
