Play Review by Martin Williams
French farce gets a 2011 makeover with the Scotland Island Players' new production of “Jealousy and Lust on the Island” which opened to a packed house at Tennis Court Community Hall last night. It runs on the weekend, Friday 27th and Saturday 29th May.

Michael, an island houseowner finds out about his wife's infidelity – and cooks up a scheme of revenge against her lover. A choice involving murder unfolds. However, Max, the unfortunate beau in question, decides to plan an alternative course and that's when the inevitable mistaken identity occurs. Saucy maids, wives, cuckold and cuckholding husbands and a long legged lady of the night all play their energetic parts. So starts a dinner party where nothing - and no one - is to be taken at face value.

Artistic Director Bob Bolton's play transports the chorus of laughter and the best Broadway and West End theatre to a Scotland Island waterfront, with hilarious action spectacularly wound into a story that's reflective of those special aspects of the bays! The cast includes Gordon 'from spurned to lusted' Floyd, Kez 'maid in heaven' Borthwick-Bolton, Matt 'macho to madness' Bowden, Jess 'legs and diamonds' Thompson, Lyn 'softly revenging' Savage, with leading lady, Cheryl 'dark seductress' Wagner, supported by David 'barking in the background' Richards!

“Utterly involving and falteringly funny - I'll go again tonight.” Netta, Island Art Critic.
“Legendary island entertainment.” Juliet, New islander and artist.
“Great, fantastic, the best play I've seen this year.” Matt, Entrepreneur Builder.
"A theatrical experience, a great laugh and artistic community gathering well worth the price of two tickets. Don't miss out, book now!"

Critic Dr Martin Williams- Lecturer communications, UTS.

Quad Bike Taken...
My name is Evan Starling.  I live at 37 Richard Rd ( the little white cottage on the waterfront).  Approximately a month ago I was informed that my Quad bike (green in colour) was taken from my back yard.   After hearing this, I went up the back to see if anyone had seen or heard of where it may have gone.  I spoke to a gentleman whippersnipping the lawns behind my property and he informed me that he knew of a young man who had taken it.  He said that the young man had thought it had been sitting there so long, he thought it had been put out for the clean up.

Quad bikes are not collected in the clean up and it was taken a week after the clean up was over!

I told him to ask this person to return it as it was not being thrown out & it was on my property.  Thankfully two days later my Quad bike had been returned.  Unfortunately I left it another two weeks before I ventured up the back to check on it.  I was stunned to find that the electricals from the front lights to the ignition and other things had been ripped out.  Obviously the person who took it had tried to hotwire it because, of course, I had the keys!!

I have since not been able to contact the gentleman I spoke to who was whiipersnipping on that day and I would like to find the offender as this is my only means of getting around the Island (being in a wheelchair).  I was aware that it had two flat tyres but I was waiting until the accessible wharf at Tennis was complete before getting it back on the track.

If the gentleman that I spoke to that day could assist me in finding the culprit or anyone has any information regarding this matter, I would greatly appreciate a call on 0402 362280.
