From the team that brought you Shirley Valentine and Always…Patsy Cline, now brings a show that’s been a hit in 28 countries around the world. My Brilliant Divorce sees star Mandi Lodge, award-winning director Denny Lawrence (AFI and ACCTA Awards) and HIT Productions (25 years touring Australia) again combining their talents. This time to present a funny heartfelt story about Angela who is trying to ‘take charge’ after a divorce from her lying, cheating husband. A divorce that shocked her…but everybody else she knows, knew she was hurtling towards. A funny, contemporary story with heart.

With 1 in 3 Australian marriages ending in divorce, this is a highly relevant topic that is skillfully tackled by leading playwright Geraldine Aron. The West End Production of the show starred Dawn French (Vicar of Dibley, French and Saunders) and was nominated for a coveted Olivier Award as Best Entertainment.

Mandi Lodge says she’s enjoying the challenge of taking on a challenging issue using wit and honesty.

"As with any upheaval, people can find funny things happen amongst the drama and it is those lighter moments that help us get through and find perspective."

"Our show works as either a funny, heartful time in the theatre or it can give people a chance to recognize the ups and downs of divorce and hopefully feel a bit better about those moments and laugh at some of the sillier stuff that goes on," said Mandi.

"It's refreshing to see a solo show that engages with a woman's inner life." - The Guardian

"Geraldine Aron's script is absolutely gorgeous...it has marvellous, grounded warmth and humour, and it ripples with wonderful, tiny moments." - Gat, UK
