  • Couples! A Multi-Award Winning One Act Comedy!



    Presented in The Melbourne International Comedy Festival by Here There & Everywhere Theatre Co. from Gippsland.

    An original, fly-on-the-wall style production, starring all regional performers!

    Married bliss or hit and miss ..

    Four vastly different yet relatable couples, descend on the peaceful country setting of the Paradise Valley Couples Retreat, for a weekend of relationship therapy.

    Sharing their stories and situations, events unfold to explore their relationships warts and all, giving the audience a glimpse into the character’s private worlds. Will the couples survive counselling, or will the cracks that develop be too deep?

    Based on real life events, the production focuses on realistic relationships and explores the themes of commitment and love. Under the guidance of their councillors, the couples interact to reveal their issues, with the aim of strengthening their individual unions, resulting in some touching moments, many comical situations and surprising revelations.

    “Couples!” won a raft of awards on the 2014 One Act Festival circuit including Best Comedy, Best Ensemble, Best Director, Best Australian Play and many Audience Choice awards, and is an insightful and poignant production that anyone who has been in a serious relationship can relate to. It serves as a warning not to enter into marriage lightly.

    In 2015 it had a sell-out season at La Mama. 2016 sees the show make its Melbourne Comedy Festival debut.
