When Dad Married Fury by David Williamson -  Watch out – here comes the bride!
Incongruous brothers Ian and Ben are on their way to Sydney to visit their recently widowed father. Three big surprises are in store when they arrive at his 75th birthday celebrations.

The ‘Old Man’ is worth $100 million. He’s gone and married Fury, an American beauty queen half his age. And there is no pre-nup …

Is there more to the beautiful Fury than meets the eye? Do Ben’s loyalties lie with his wife, his dad or himself? Can Ian contain his greed long enough to get a signature on the right will? And who is to blame for the death of Ben’s father-in-law?

One thing is for certain: everything changed when Dad married Fury.

With his trademark wit and skillful blending ofcontemporary culture within the ageless framework of family greed, jealousy, love and expectation, Australia’s leading playwright David Williamson delivers another gripping play and his most memorable characters to date.

“Satirical Williamson at his best… in this play the issues are topical and important.” – The Australian

“Riveting, unexpected and extremely entertaining. The entire play pivots, the action becomes dynamic, the audience sits up straight and begins to pay the closest attention. Suddenly new territory is opened up and it’s a place many are bewildered by, astonished by, and quite desperate to understand. Delivers laughs and jolts in equal measure.” – Stagenoise
