Reserved Seating Only WEB

Produced by Boxing Day Productions
Adapted and developed by David Ross Paterson from a play by Peter B Sonenstein

Director: Peter Houghton; Music: Original score Patrick Sarell; Cast: David Ross Paterson and Cecelia Specht

Our great game viewed by an unlikely pair in the reserved section of a major football stadium.  This action packed play features David Ross Paterson as a loud, burly football fan, and Cecelia Specht as a recently divorced football widow, who has claimed her ex-husband’s tickets as part of a messy divorce settlement.  As a footy ‘conscientious objector’ she is blissfully immune to the attraction of the game and instantly locks horns with her ex-husband’s footy mate who becomes her reluctant companion over four eventful quarters.  They make a seriously mismatched couple with little to offer each other.  Or do they?  Reserved Seating Only brings the colour and controversy of football to the stage, along with a witty insight into the battle of the sexes set in the context of our national obsession with sport.

‘This play is absolutely hilarious… hilarious and moving… one unexpected laugh after another.’  Alison Beckett MCV

‘… This is not about football, it’s about relationships.’  Beautiful performances.’ 
Mary Lou Jelbart, Jon Fain ABC Radio

‘The audiences’ enjoyment of this light-hearted play suggests that the divide between sport and art is nonsense.’  The Age
