David Williamson’s trademark satirical pen finds razor-sharp form in this clever, stylish and sophisticated comedy set in the ruthless world of celebrity.

Overview

World premiere

Celia and Vicki were best friends at drama school, but the game of life has dealt them very different hands.

Celia is a high profile soap star earning ridiculous amounts of money and the requisite harbourside views. Meanwhile Vicki is scraping by in gritty, critically acclaimed roles in independent theatre.

When Vicki proposes they collaborate on an ambitious new film project, it could be a big opportunity for both of them to prove their mettle in the industry. But are Vicki’s motives as well-intentioned as they seem, or will jealousy rear its ugly head?

David Williamson’s trademark satirical pen finds razor-sharp form in this clever, stylish and sophisticated comedy set in the ruthless world of celebrity.

Director's Note

THE BIG TIME questions the price of fame, ambition, friendship and what it takes to be true to yourself.

I am thrilled to be directing David Williamson’s latest social comedy with such an exciting cast.  Hang on to your seat belts…
