Timeshare / takes Fast Forward’s comic icon Marg Downey on a trip to Paradise; a things-are-not-what-they-seem resort from the hilarious mind of writer Lally Katz (Stories I Want to Tell You in Person). At this curious resort straddling the International Dateline, guests can claim a bonus day for free – just step back in time to the other side of the island.

Directed by Oliver Butler of New York’s theatre powerhouse The Debate Society, Timeshare is loaded with Katz’s signature quirky humour and a handful of witty musical numbers, as she creates a place full of exotic temples, late night scuba diving lessons, empty infinity pools and tardy turtles. A place where time and memory effortlessly slip away.

Come on a captivating and hilarious holiday that / leaves reality behind.

Timeshare is as entertaining as it is strange …  an enjoyable and genuinely surprising new comedy.

– The Age

Downey employs her considerable comedic prowess to Katz’s razor sharp writing in this hilarious and touching show.

– Australian Arts Review

Very funny … leaves the audience wanting more.
