Sorting Out Rachel

Date: 9 Jan 2018

When it comes to business, Bruce (John Howard) knows what to do.

You’ve got to out-bite the sharks and twist a good deal before you get screwed. But as the years go by and his legacy starts to loom, his thoughts turn to his exasperated daughter Julie (Natalie Saleeba), her social climbing husband Craig (Glenn Hazeldine) and his granddaughter, Rachel (Jenna Owen), who unfortunately takes after him.

Perhaps it’s time to make amends. Can Bruce solve his family issues without giving away a long-held secret?

Chenoa Deemal makes her Ensemble theatre debut as Tess. Nadia Tass directs.
