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.
