Legit Theatre Co. in association with bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company present MISERY LOVES COMPANY by Isabella Reid // Directed by Mathew Lee

Northern Ireland. 1977. The Glynne family gather to mourn and celebrate the life of Daphne, beloved mother to Jackie, daughter to George and sister to Dolores and Henry. Daphne is remembered for a keen passion for swing-dancing, a mighty collection of brooches and a new venture into lesbianism.

Emerging Sydney playwright Isabella Reid’s first play comments on grief, religion and family acceptance in the face of political and social unrest, where a company of ten Glynnes prove anything that can go wrong, will. They discover real struggle isn’t dealing with Daphne’s death, but the inability to provide her a dignified wake.

The development of this work was supported by Shopfront Arts Co-Op and The Department of Education’s The Arts Unit.

“A brilliant, thought provoking and hilarious look into family at its most vulnerable. Superbly written with insight well beyond her years!” - Amy Payten, St Catherine’s, Waverley

“Bitter-sweet, outrageously funny, clever, witty and heartfelt. I absolutely adored it and my students did too.” - Meg Veness, Gosford High School
