Charlie Fuller has built himself a comfortable life in his retirement village, having several ‘friends with benefits’, all of who are aware of, and happy with the situation. His daughter thinks he needs looking after, that he may be declining, losing his grip. Meanwhile she is having her own dalliance with a work colleague. The arrival of a new widow and her nephew upsets the balance for both of them.
Erik Strauts, director, has brought melodrama back in spectacular fashion with Love Rides The Rails, a hilarious and wildly entertaining play set in the fictionalised Adelaide Hills of the 1890s.
