The Queensland premiere of David Williamson's 50th play, Jack of Hearts is a romantic comedy with a twist - a play about career professionals focused on the material things in life.

The central character, Jack, a burned-out lawyer, pulls the plug on wealth and status only to find that his wife's support is conditional on his six-figure salary. His wife, a personal trainer decides to leave him for a self-obsessed television current affairs host.

Real estate agent Stu, played by Williamson’s son Rory, and his wife Denys are struggling through marriage problems of their own.

What ensues are two love triangles in a comedy that explores issues of gender, class and social mobility.

Directed by Noosa Arts Theatre life member Jane Rivers, Jack of Hearts features a stellar team of local actors including Rory’s wife Janneke Williamson, Clayton Storey, Noosa’s Deputy Mayor Frank Wilkie, Julia Verburgt, Kay Ellsum and Jenni McCaul.

​Marco! … Polo! Usually the sound of summer in Australia. I’m overlooking the pool at Mantra French Quarter Noosa with a glass of Lanson in hand and it is supposedly winter. Don’t tell the kids. Perhaps winter never comes to Noosa...

VISIT NOOSA

Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!
