Galleon Theatre Group (GTG) is kicking off its exciting 2024 season with Of Good Stock a South Australian premiere written by Melissa Ross and directed by Kym Clayton. Tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season.


Of Good Stock is a raw, poignant, and hilarious look at the fun and dysfunction of that thing we call family. The play centres around three sisters, Jess, Amy and Celia, who are witty, brilliant, beautiful, and dysfunctional.

When their father, legendary novelist Mick Stockton died, he left his three daughters a house in Cape Cod, control over his books, and a whole lot of issues. He was a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist who had many affairs, and their mother died young, and it's left them all pretty messed up.

It's Jess's 41st birthday and she and her husband Fred have invited her younger sisters to their house on Cape Cod to celebrate. It's an important milestone for Jess: she's surpassing the age of her mother, who died from cancer years ago. Amy is joined by her fiancé, Josh. Celia, the youngest, brings Hunter, her boyfriend.

Their reunion ignites passions, humour, and wildly unanticipated upheavals.

This production includes cast members Dora Stamos, Melissa Moon, Amanda Grifsas, Chris Dewar, Josh Van't Padje and Nathan Brown.

Reviews

"Smoothly paced, occasionally touching, and ... as comforting as a quart of mint chocolate chip ice cream, eaten straight from the container."- The New York Times

"The reunion, oiled with scotch, leads to upsetting revelations, the airing of grievances, clumsy tendernesses, profane screams and forgiving ruminations that volley across the stage in a zany, often very funny cacophony ... Ross's characters are drawn with assurance, wit and gentle mockery - we definitely have met these people ..."- Los Angeles Times

"Laugh-out-loud funny...relatable and thoroughly entertaining."- Entertainment Weekly

"Ross displays a flair for writing sharp, funny dialogue." - Hollywood Reporter

"An engrossing mix of humour and heart. Ross's three sisters strike a fine balance between the comfortingly recognizable and enchantingly fresh." - TheaterMania.com
