A fast and funny farce written by Geoff Bamber and directed by Janet Marshall, Diplomatic Relations is set in the Australian embassy in a small post-revolutionary country somewhere in south America. While the ambassador, Miranda Carruthers, tries to keep her husband’s dodgy dealings and everything else on track, unexpected visitors, ex-lovers and an anarchist who’s determined to create chaos all conspire against her. Can Miranda fight off the attentions of a would-be lover, Colonel Fegundez, prepare for a VIP visit and cover-up her husband’s shady activities? And who’s the girl who just can’t seem to keep all her clothes on?

Why not make a night of it and bring your friends and family?
For a relaxed and fun evening, our seats are arranged around tables of 8 and you can bring your own drinks and snacks, kick back and enjoy the show with friends – or make new friends! (see seating plan here). You can also buy individual tickets if you don’t want to book a whole table. Sorry, but we can’t add extra chairs, however, we will aim to keep your group members close together if you book early – our shows tend to sell out fast. If you or any member of your party has special needs, for example, uses a wheelchair or other mobility aid, please advise us when you buy tickets or shortly afterwards so we can do our best to make sure you have a great evening. Contact us through this website or via Messenger.
We encourage you to bring nibbles & wine/beer (cups provided, no unmixed spirits please). We’re BYO only – there are a couple of bottle shops within easy walking distance and some great restaurants for pre-show dining. Soft drinks and tea or coffee are available for purchase in the foyer.
All of our shows are, of course, live theatre and this means that we can’t rewind the action – therefore, popping that champagne cork/opening those crisps mid-show is a no-no. Please open your goodies before the action starts on stage to ensure that no-one around you is disturbed.
Our shows are performed at the Coolum Civic Centre, Park Street, Coolum – click here for more information.
