Kiss of the Gallery Guard

Date: 17 Apr 2018

Young Amber leaves the outback under a cloud.

She makes good in Sydney at the Art Gallery of NSW, then better in London … and even better in New York. How did she do it? And what happens if she returns to Australia?

Part mystery, part comedy and part romance, this new play from Carol Dance (Future Seekers, Indian Embrace) plunges the audience into the surprising life of gallery attendant Amber (Cara Severino),  young and eager to understand how one particular painting can be interpreted in nine different ways by nine different gallery visitors.

When theft, forgery and romance ensue, the plot thickens …

Directed by Murray Lambert, Kiss of the Gallery Guard stars Cara Severino (Girls Like That), Eli Saad (Beirut Adrenalin, Asylum, Future Seekers) and Chloe Schwank (Julius Caesar, Cosi, Comedy of Errors), with music by pianist Philip Eames.
