A PLAY from the pen of Offspring creator and head writer Debra Oswald comes to Melville Theatre this autumn, focusing on friendship, ego and the secret longing for a better life.

Directed by Vanessa Jensen, Mr Bailey’s Minder is the story of Leo Bailey, one of Australia’s greatest living artists, whose genius battles to survive the effects of alcohol, cynicism and self-loathing.

Only one of his many children, Margo, is prepared to help but only at arm’s length – she finds live-in-minder Therese, fresh out of prison and desperate for a home.

Added to the mix is handyman Karl who has the job of removing a valuable mural but keeps returning with offers of practical friendship.

Oswald is an award-winning writer for film, television, stage, radio and children’s fiction with credits including Police Rescue, Bananas in Pyjamas, Wildside and The Secret Life of Us.
