Williamstown Little Theatre is proud to present Mr Bailey’s Minder running from the 8th to 24th February 2018 at the Albert Street theatre.
Abusive, cantankerous and burned out by booze, Leo Bailey is one of Australia’s national treasures. A gifted painter and chronic alcoholic, he can no longer take care of himself. His resentful daughter has been through a succession of minders, until Therese comes along, fresh out of jail and determined to make a go of her limited options.
Mr Bailey’s Minder is a tough, funny and big-hearted play. It’s about shame and judgment, about who deserves to be loved and forgiven. It looks at how people exploit each other and where they find the beauty; and the qualities of transcendence, letting go and forgiveness.
Natasha Boyd, who is part of the Play Selection Committee, was excited at the addition of Mr Bailey’s Minder to the Williamstown Little Theatre 2018 season.
“I loved reading this play as part of the WLT Play Selection committee and cannot wait to see Deborah Fabbro bring it to life,” she said.
Shirley Sydenham, the play’s Production Coordinator, was happy that Williamstown Little Theatre are starting off the year with an Australian story.
I love the play and am very happy being production coordinator for Deborah Fabbro, as she brings this play to the WLT stage. Australian voices are a nice start to an exciting year of productions,” she said.
