‘Oakley has given some of the most enjoyable evenings on the Melbourne stage’ – Max Gillies
‘Menelaus show[s] how good acting can be’ – Theatrenotes
A troubled marriage, an estranged brother, a disloyal friend – Jack has made a botch of all the important relationships in his life. It’s time for him to put his affairs in order, but his strength is waning and he has neglected crucial matters for far too long. Yet, almost without realising it, those who once laughed with him and loved him – and might love him still – are tying up the loose ends of a ragged life.
Farewell symphony. Barry Oakley’s haunting and evocative Music reverberates with sympathy and humour without a false note of sentimentality. Jane Menelaus and Richard Piper reunite to mark Barry Oakley’s return to the theatre.
