This is David Williamson at his best; a classic social comedy from the 1990’s. It’s smart, funny and ultimately about the cost of friendship.

Overview

Peter, a mathematician, is the nicest guy on the holiday block, but his over generosity has bitten him back. After getting his brother out of bankruptcy, he now finds himself in debt. His neighbour, Margaret, decides to ask their wealthy friends for a helping hand. While they happily take advantage of Peter’s kind nature, how forthcoming will they be to bail him out and risk their own financial security?

Set in fictitious Crystal Inlet, a holiday beach resort where four couples regularly meet to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney life, MONEY AND FRIENDS is one of David Williamson’s best whip-smart comedies.

This rehearsed read by a nine-strong cast, including Rachel Gordon (THE NORMAN CONQUESTS), Emma Harvie (THE LAST WIFE), James Lugton (THE ODD COUPLE), Brian Meegan (THE ODD COUPLE), Sharon Millerchip (THE APPLETON LADIES’ POTATO RACE), Matt Minto (CRUNCH TIME), Joseph Raggatt (DIPLOMACY), Monica Sayers (MTC’s HAY FEVER) and David Whitney (RELATIVELY SPEAKING), cleverly examines the clash of materialism and ideals. You know what they say, “you can ask a friend for anything… except money.”
