His Girl Friday is a theatre adaption of the 30′s screen classic, which in turn was adapted from a satire on tabloid journalism, called The Front Page (Hecht and McArthur). NOTE: The last show is on SATURDAY, not FRIDAY.
The show is about a chick who is ready to give up on the newspaper story game in Chicago to go hang with her filthy-rich fiance, and get away from her ex-husband (who is also editor of the newspaper). Then she gets an awesome scoop fall in her lap that she just has to write about, when cruising back home at midnight on the train.
Directed by John Guare, this is wise-cracking and sharp as hell, and it’s probably a lot more glamorous then journalism is in real life.
WHEN: Saturday, 11 August, 2-4pm/8:30-10:30pm
WHERE: Playhouse, 100 St Kilda Road, Southbank
