Yanakie to host monster sale
FLEDGLING theatre company, Nautilus The-
atre Project, has launched itself impressively with
‘Soliloquy’, a combination of an intriguing theatri-
cal experience with a walking tour in Fish Creek.
The first official performance took place on a
balmy summer night last Friday.
The project might more aptly be titled ‘Solilo-
quies’ as there are in fact eight monologues, each
well-paced and engagingly delivered by eight sea-
soned actors portraying an astonishing variety of
characters though each is affected by feelings of
isolation and vulnerability.
Most soliloquies included lots of movement
and a slightly quirky story with at least a dash of
pathos and a tinge of self–deprecating humour in
a script created by Chris Dickins who is also the
project’s artistic director.
Six directors, Bernadette Grainger, Christine
Skicko, Chris Dickins, Joanne Street, David
Tattersall and Harley McDonald-Eckersall, were
involved in bringing the separate monologues to
fruition and ensuring that each vignette could
Adding to the ambience of the production was
the manner in which the audience was escorted
to music around various locations carefully cho-
sen to enhance the mood of each soliloquy.
The performance began at the Fish Creek Bowl-
ing Club where Bruce Grainger, the talented win-
ner of multiple Gippsland Theatre awards with
both FAMDA and Leongatha Lyric Theatre, set
the scene in a beautifully modulated performance
about a widower turning up to play bowls soon
after his doctor has told him he is facing a termi-
At the children’s playground young Cas Ma-
clean, as Kellie, utilised play equipment to create
a balcony and even a pool table as she described
her resentment at her parents’ separation and the
intruder who has now become her father’s part-
Harley McDonald–Eckersall was luminous as
a slightly deranged bride dressed in white lace
and heavy brown boots which gave her an air of
vulnerability as she danced franticly around the
former railway station.
Idling away his time on the verandah outside
the hardware store, David Tattersall convincingly
played an angry and sullen 15 year-old totally
lacking in self-confidence and ambition.
In a scene played at the back of the Fish Creek
Hall, Michael Street and Christine Skicko alter-
nated monologues about middle aged people fac-
ing marriage breakdowns, declining career pros-
pects and life expectations.
Joanne Street demonstrated increasing panic
and deterioration of decision making facilities as
her character declined into mental illness.
The last monologue involved a smug and suc-
cessful young man, played by Billy Wilson, who
burst exuberantly into view at the back of the
children’s playground, running, jumping, slid-
ing down slides, speaking in rhymes, oozing with
confidence and boasting of his financial acumen
only to find himself suddenly confined to a wheel-
chair and contemplating a very different lifestyle.
The final scene in the supper room at the Fish
Creek Hall tied the disparate stories together as
the links between the characters were revealed.
The thoroughly enjoyable ‘Soliloquy’ experience
continues over the next two weeks with perfor-
mances at 8pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and
Fridays until January 20.
The starting point for the venture is the Fish
Creek Bowling Club.
There is no need to book ahead as tickets go on
sale at the bowling club from 7pm on the evening
of each performance.
The chosen venues for each soliloquy are in a
fairly confined area so there are no great walking
It is suggested that audience members bring
folding chairs, insect repellent and perhaps a
jacket in case it gets nippy.
There are contingency plans for an indoor per-
formance in the event of inclement weather but
hopefully patrons will be able to experience the
full effect of this enchanting outdoor event, com-
plete with the cockatoos.
There is some coarse language in the produc-
tion which is suited to people aged 15+.
