Essence Productions, Wyndham City’s resident independent theatre company is thrilled to present Jack & Millie – a dramatic comedy. Based on the true story of Alaine Beek’s difficult, but often hilarious experiences during and after her breast cancer diagnosis.
“Jack & Millie is a provocative and surreal play which explores the associations of self-worth and confidence in the face of a life-threatening disease. This story will help raise awareness and encourage discussion between cancer sufferers and their friends and family normalizing these intense feelings and conversations”, said Alaine Beek, playwright.
Jennifer Vuletic from the hit series Wentworth joins Essence actors Alaine Beek and Phil Cameron-Smith to perform this highly energetic play.
Tickets: $35 for adults or $30 for concession – $2 per ticket given to Cancer Council Victoria.
Jack & Millie opens 17 February 2021 for two weeks (Wednesday to Saturday evenings only), closing on 27 February. A wonderful night under the stars, held in the outdoor amphitheatre at Saltwater Community Centre, Point Cook, in accordance with COVID safe practices.
