The play had its premiere at Marloo Theatre (Darlington Players), Perth, Western Australia in 2016.
It was also presented by Stirling Players, Perth, the following year..
‘Varsity Blues’ is a 20-minute one-act written by local jester and linguistic pedant, Bob Charteris.
Scene: Today in a typical home.
University lecturer, Frank (Bob Charteris) is uptight about his application for a senior post in the English Department. Vera (Janet Weston) tries to pacify him, as she prepares for the four obnoxious grandchildren’s daily visit. Perhaps a few jokes from the local vicar, Walter (Jonathan Freedman) might lighten the situation.
Directed by Bob Charteris, this family situation – with which many of the audience obviously connected – brought plenty of smiles.
