Australian premiere of an award winning comedy
The Adelaide Repertory Theatre is proudly presenting the Australian premiere of The Psychic this Winter. Tickets are now on sale for this clever and fun play which has an unexpected dramatic twist!

The Psychic is an award-winning play by celebrated American author and playwright Sam Bobrick which won the Mystery Writers of America's coveted 'Edgar Award' in 2011.

Known for his engrossing murder mysteries, Bobrick prides himself on leaving his audience with a smile '…my main goal is to entertain, to have people leaving the theatre feeling good.'

Directed by Erik Strauts, The Psychic perfectly blends classic murder mystery elements with modern comedy and is set to have Adelaide audiences in stitches this Winter!

The Psychic follows the chaotic life of Adam Webster (Josh Van't Padje), a down-on-his-luck mystery writer, unable to pay his rent. In a bid to make some money, Adam puts a sign in his window offering Psychic readings for $25. Little did he know, this was going to change his life, and possibly save his career.

The sign draws the interest of the lovely and conflicted Laura (Anita Pipprell), her shady husband, Roy (James Whitrow) and ace Detective Norris Coslow (Malcolm Walton). Is Adam actually psychic? Adam soon finds himself involved in a strange series of events that leads to a string of bizarre and hilarious murders. The question on everybody's mind is… who did it? Was it the gun-bearing gangster, Johnny Bubbles (James Black), or the sexy mistress, Rita Malone (Jessica McGaffin)?

Described as a '…laugh-filled unexpectedly entertaining ride that gratifies copiously from moment to moment' by Broadway World.Com, Bobrick's brilliant script is a murder mystery at its funniest - a play not to be missed!

The cast includes Josh Van't Padje, Anita Pipprell, James Black, James Whitrow, Jessica McGaffin and Malcolm Walton.

Tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season at The Arts Theatre - 8 performances only - from June 22 to 24 and June 28 to July 1 at 8pm. A special matinee performance will be held on July 1 at 2pm.

Tickets are priced from $17 to $22 and can be purchased through Trybooking. Early bookings are encouraged.
