Warrandyte Theatre’s first production for 2023 is Under the Table. A brand new work from a young Australian author, Sean Guy.

A witty and quirky whodunit, opening on March 17 to coincide with the Warrandyte Festival, this show is sure to be a sell-out.

Sean is based in Darwin but grew up as a local in Doncaster. He’s thrilled that his first play is going to be on stage at Warrandyte.

We also welcome Louise Phelan as the director of Under the Table. You may remember Lou from Calerdar Girls and many, many Follies. Louise is relishing this fresh, new look at the classic whodunnit genre and is excited to be working with many new faces to Warrandyte.

A cast of six brings three new faces, two new-ish faces and one familiar face to our stage. Pablo Robert, Eleni Karandinas and Adrian Quintarelli all make their Warrandyte debut in this production while Rebecca Rose, Kerry Walsh and Michelle Reeves return to grace our stage again. The cast is thoroughly enjoying this deliciously witty script.

Under the Table takes the familiar whodunnit trope and flips it on it’s head. We have a murder, we have suspects, we have a slightly dodgy corpse and we have somewhat competent detectives. Can they solve this ever more confusing crime? Will the perpetrator reveal themselves? What on earth is the murder weapon? Is there even a crime?
