Sensational musical comedy plays one Melbourne show only!

In a story based on the real-life relationship of composer Marvin Hamlisch and lyricist Carole Bayer Sager, a wisecracking composer finds a new, offbeat lyricist. When Vernon Gersch invites Sonia Walsk to his luxury Manhattan apartment the meeting uncovers two very different personalities. He is aloof and focused, while she is disorganised and distracted – but Vernon has already written music to one of Sonia's lyrics, so they decide to forge ahead.

To get to know each other better on a professional level, Vernon and Sonia go out to dinner. But, hearing one of their songs played at the venue that night, the couple admit to their deeper feelings and embark on a relationship. After living and working together, the romance soon hits trouble. Away from his piano, Vernon struggles to express his deepest feelings, while Sonia has her own problems – namely Leon, the ex-boyfriend who can’t seem to stay away.

When it comes to making music, they’re a match made in Heaven. But is this relationship doomed, or will love hit the right note?

They're Playing Our Song features two star characters (played by husband and wife Scott Irwin and Danielle Barnes) singing such memorable songs as I Still Believe in Love, If He Really Knew Me, They’re Playing Our Song and Fallin’, making this romantic comedy an unforgettable evening of stellar musical entertainment.
