A delightfully amusing and poignant play about the nature of marriage, the pursuit of happiness and the perfect foxtrot!
Wallflowering, by award winning Australian playwright Peta Murray, is a delightfully amusing and poignant play about the nature of marriage, the pursuit of happiness and the perfect foxtrot!
The play revolves around the lives of Peg and Cliff Small, an ordinary, suburban, middle aged couple who were once prize-winning ballroom dancers. The action is interspersed with ballroom dancing by a younger couple, who represent not only Peg and Cliff in their glory days, but also the older couple’s romantic, idealised view of themselves.
"...loving in an ordinary way may be quite an extraordinary gift after all." - THE WEST AUSTRALIAN
While Cliff now has dreams of becoming a writer, but can get no further than writing lists of clever book titles, Peg on the other hand is no longer content to quietly and unquestioningly follow her husband. She wants to lead and sees the possibilities and excitement in change. These changes cause them to be out of step with each other and threaten their marriage.
There is great comedy and pathos in the exploration of Cliff and Peggy’s “ordinary” lives. In the swish of a taffeta skirt and slide of patent shoes across the floor, the audience are transported to a glorious and romantic vision of our champions as perfectly synchronised, beautiful and extraordinary people.
