Playing games is a dangerous occupation
It has been said that the in-fighting at universities is so vicious because the prizes are so small. It's certainly true that when family fights go bad it gets very vicious indeed as everyone knows exactly which buttons to press and how to hurt most.

Secrets from the past get dredged up, skeletons removed from closets and rattled around.

This is the theme of Tony Moore's play Snakes and Ladders, KaDS next production.

Moore has been involved in theatre for nearly fifty years. He began writing in the late 80's as a result of a lost bet. He has written One Act plays Audition Peace, Coping, Jane was Sixteen Yesterday and three act plays ReCreation and Snakes and Ladders.

The play centres on retired sisters, Charlie and Emily, who are enjoying a quiet Sunday evening at home. Suddenly Charlie's daughter Beth arrives. She's left her husband and comes home to Mum.

Her unexpected arrival triggers tension and a cosy night playing Snakes and Ladders turns into an examination of the past and secrets new and old.

This is a funny, moving Australian drama directed by award winning Christine Ellis and features Julie Holmshaw, Karin Stafflund and Jennifer McGrath.

Snakes and Ladders runs at KaDS Theatre, Barber Square, Kalamunda from Friday February 10th to March 4th all at 8pm.

Tickets cost $20.00 (Adults), $17.00 (Concession) and are available from Lucky Charm Kiosk by ringing 9257 2687.
