Life aint easy when you're a lawyer from St Ives
The Sydney suburb of St Ives is known for its beautiful tree-lined streets, its upper middle class population and its Iranian refugees. Wait, what?

This is the kind of out-of-place dilemma Henry Crowley faces in his own home in Tony Laumberg's new play, The Good, The Bad and the Lawyer, playing at the TAP Gallery until 27th October.

Henry lives a comfortable existence as a top lawyer in a nice home in a nice neighbourhood. His life is turned upside-down by the arrival of an Iranian refugee his wife has decided to take in until his asylum application comes through. If this culture shock isn't enough, Henry's black sheep cousin arrives from Brisbane with the promise of a money-making scheme that cannot fail provided Henry cough up the $10,000 to invest in it. Oh, and it's not an investment, it's a night of gambling at a roulette table. Oh, and a reporter from the Financial Review is also following Henry around trying to dig up dirt!

The Good, The Bad and the Lawyer touches on aspects of everyday life that make us question how we live. Are we good people? What's wrong with living comfortably? What if I don't want an Iranian refugee shaking up my routine? Amidst the maelstrom in Australia surrounding the welfare of asylum seekers, this comes as a welcome breathe of fresh air to remind us that it's our humanity, not our differences, that keep us all together.

The Good, The Bad and the Lawyer is currently playing at the TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst until 27th October. To purchase tickets and for more information, visit the TAP Gallery website.
