Exploring the trouser legs of space and time
Rising young Perth playwright Jessica Messenger, who wrote the outstanding The Standover Man has written another darkly comic play mixing jazz with drama.
The play centres on Naomi, a successful 29 year old who seems to have her life together with a stable relationship with a great-looking guy and a satisfying and well-paid job.

She runs into an ex-boyfriend like Helen in Sliding Doors and she wonders what if things had taken another path.
According to the author: "The play explores three different versions of Naomi's life: the high flying career woman, the baby-wearing Earth Mother, and the sultry jazz singer. As Naomi is catapulted from one version of her life to another, she begins to concoct a plan. What if she can cease to exist in one reality and take up residence in another?"
Multiverse Theory in D is produced by Ellandar Productions and directed by the playwright and runs at The Blue Room Theatre in the Perth Cultural Centre, Northbridge, from 17 November–5 December 2015 at 7:00pm.
