Presented by Mordialloc Theatre Company Inc.

Equally Divided by Ronald Harwood

Directed by Cheryl Ballantine Richards

This all too human comedy about trying to do the right thing, is by Oscar-nominated author and playwright Ronald Harwood, who penned The Dresser and Quartet. It is a domestically familiar tale: Edith likes to think she is a good person. She was a dutiful daughter to her demanding mother, while selfish, younger sister Renata got all the attention (and all the husbands). Now their mother has died, the estate is to be divided equally between the impecunious spinster Edith and her rich, much-married sister Renata. Edith looked after ‘Ma’ for ages; Renata barely lifted one of her painted fingernails to help the old dear. But something tells her that Renata – glamorous, impossible, Renata – will always come out on top. The plot centres on the question – will Edith find that honesty, like beauty, is only skin deep? Will their eccentric mother’s temptingly portable collection of antiques, littered round the set, an old railway carriage on a beach in Southern England, prove a temptation too far?
