Beautiful Highness a new Australian black comedy by Chelsea Plumley.
Shelley – a spunky, wise-cracking battler – lives with a soundscape of non-stop ‘Voices’ plaguing her every waking minute. The only relief comes from weekly visits to see her kids who live with their Nana, daily phone calls to her siblings, and really, really loud music.
Based on a true story, Beautiful Highness centres around one family’s incredible grit and determination dealing with mental ill-health. Unsentimental, heartwarming and gently humorous, the play crystallises just how important a sense of belonging and connection is for all of us. Beautiful Highness is an empathy recharge for those living with or supporting someone with a diagnosis; the family members, carers and practitioners.
Written by musical theatre and cabaret star, Chelsea Plumley, and featuring music and sound design by ARIA and APRA winner, James Roche (Bachelor Girl).
Cast: Michelle Stayner (Blue Heelers, Halifix F.P., Carson’s Law), Petra Glieson (Metro Sexual, It’s A Date, The Dr Blake Mysteries), Tanya Schneider (Harrow, Metro Sexual, Heist), Angela Kennedy (Come From Away, Strictly Ballroom the Musical, Sons and Daughters), Anthony Scundi (Unsolicited Male, Nine – the Musical, Hurlyburly), Jessica Faulkner (The Inbestigators, Glitch, Mustangs FC), and child actors Jasper McDonald Parsons and Alistair Herbert.
