Postnuptials (Hollywood, CA & Sydney, Australia)

 “A chaotically funny play, both vigorous and spirited.  Catch this play while you can and be prepared for an exhilarating night of theatre.” ~ Bronwyn Fullerton / Sydney Arts Guide

“Making Priscilla seem positively prim is Postnuptials, a farcical feast of funnies.  The show is first and foremost a comedy, but it’s also not afraid to shoot past pure entertainment value for a little something more.” ~ Angela Bennetts / Alternative Media Group (Alt Media)

“Postnuptials is a great little play as it highlights the difficulties some people experience through misconception and stereotyping.  We have all experienced at one time or another a bigoted attitude towards being gay, and Postnuptials demonstrates the experiences of a young man who is assumed to be gay by his family and his brides.  Written by David Earle, this stage play has some very interesting themes including how someone deals with confrontation about their sexuality on their wedding day and how the family deals with it.  It is great to see that at this time of year some really interesting works get presented on stage that wouldn’t normally get to see the light of day.  So do yourself a favour and go along and see Postnuptials.” ~ Matthew D’Silva / Same Same

“Postnuptials is entertaining, enjoyable and actually rather irresistible” ~ Polly Warfield / Drama-Logue

“Postnuptials offers at its best a wacky romp through the dangerous thicket of the universally subjective interpretation of the meaning of unconditional love” ~ Thomas Meurer & Solace Pineo / Entertainment Today

“David Earle’s new comedy is a well written and very funny play that has some real laugh-out loud lines, situations and performances.  The convoluted plot could have easily tired out or fallen flat, but Earle explores his plot and well-defined characters, and along with crisp dialogue makes it all work…  A lot of emotions are investigated through comedy.  Earle makes some important statements about trust, families, friends and unconditional love” ~ Dave DePino / West Hollywood Weekly

“Postnuptials is a decidedly wicked screwball comedy, witty, well written, with many surprising twists to a well-paced story concerning The Eternal Triangle – Boy gets girl; boy loses girl; boy gets wrestled to the ground by a female impersonator (no fooling).  All this happens during a young couples’ wild and unconventional wedding night.  Secrets are revealed, relationships are formed as others crumble, and the true meaning of unconditional love is discovered.  While the play is not for everybody (and what play is?), keep an open mind and treat yourself and a friend to an evening of laughter with a very original story.  See Postnuptials.  It’s so good to laugh at life . . . and ourselves” ~ Michael Ellis / SHOWCASE
