SPECIAL PRE-FESTIVAL EVENT
ODD MAN OUT
By David Williamson
Proudly sponsored by Settlers Cove
Noosa Long Weekend Festival is proud to present this special pre-festival event, for a strictly limited number of performances.
ODD MAN OUT-SYNOPSIS
It starts like a fairy-tale romance: Ryan tells Alice she has a beautiful smile, and suddenly he is asking her out. Alice has never met anyone like Ryan before: he’s charming, forthright and painfully truthful. She knows their relationship is moving way too fast, but there is something ridiculously attractive about this straight-talking man.
His bluntness may upset her family and friends, but when he asks her to marry him, she finds herself saying…yes. As newlyweds, Alice discovers a side of Ryan she never knew existed – and becomes determined to fix his flaws, with ridiculous and disastrous results.
SMH **** (4 stars)
“Impressive…compelling….finely nuanced.” John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
“Remarkably fascinating…absorbing…recommended.” Diana Simmonds, Stagenoise
“Cotta turns in a spectacular performance, intelligent and thorough in his approach, for an interpretation that is immensely engaging and amusing, while retaining a solid amount of insightful nuance. Whether wildly rhapsodic or sensitive and quiet, Cotta provides the production with excellent layers of depth and clarity, giving the show a meaningful sense of purpose.” Suzy Goes See
“There is humour and pathos in Williamson’s writing. Justin Stewart Cotta is brilliant and engaging. Director Mark Kilmurry has done a great job with the direction. A play worth seeing for its examination of love and commitment, and for raising our awareness of the debilitating Aspersers Syndrome.” Sydney Arts Guide
“Packed with life….plenty of laughs.” Stage Whispers
“David Williamson…a master of social comedy…impressive…Odd Man Out is at time hilarious. It’s also confronting…a pleasurable theatrical experience.” Sydney Scoop
