My Brilliant Divorce

Cessnock Performing Arts Centre
198 Vincent Street, Cessnock, NSW, 2325

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 loved-stage star Mandi Lodge, award-winning director Denny Lawrence (AFI and ACCTA Awards) and HIT Productions 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 knew, knew what she was hurtling towards.

My Brilliant Divorce, by Geraldine Aron, is the radiantly witty and warm personal account of Angela. Dumped by her husband for a younger model, we follow her achingly funny story as she fumbles through the days and the dating scene, rediscovering herself and hoping to find the love of her life!
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.”
– Mandi Lodge.
