Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas) has just been appointed to a key ministerial position in the shadow cabinet – the crowning achievement of her political career. She and her husband Bill (Timothy Spall) plan to celebrate this with a few close friends. As the guests arrive at their home in London the party takes an unexpected turn when Bill suddenly makes some explosive revelations that take everyone present by surprise.

Love, friendships and political convictions are soon called into question in this hilarious comedy of tragic proportions. From acclaimed British filmmaker Sally Potter and featuring a star studded cast that includes Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Timothy Spall, this witty, sharp and very funny new comedy will be a unmissable date for everyone’s diary.

*** Pre-show musical entertainment provided by the ‘sassy, sophisticated, soulful and sexy’ Fiona Lawe Davies.

Fiona has been honing her craft on Perth’s stages for more than 15 years and her unique vocal ability is both pure and sultry, with a rhythmic lilt and intimate style. She draws inspiration from classic jazz artists such as Joe Williams and Julie London, modern jazz icons like Shirley Horn and Brad Mehldau and a slew of heart-rending indie musicians including Rufus Wainwright, Damien Rice and Portishead. Tonight, Fiona will set the scene with a beguiling blend of jazz standards and original arrangements drawing influence from post punk to indie pop.

From 5pm each night, guests can enjoy live music and a picnic dinner on Cottesloe Civic Centre’s beautiful manicured lawn, while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. In addition to pizza and John St Cafe’s highly-sought after Italian donuts and coffee, guests can now choose from a delicious array of burgers, burritos and nachos from the street food gurus, Clean Tasty Dirty.

EFTPOS available. Don't miss HAPPY HOUR from 5PM! No BYO alcohol. Thanks to our generous sponsors, the bar will be stocked with Forester Estate wines, Pirate Life beers and Aperol Spritz cocktails, as well as a section of soft drinks, juice and Carton Water.
