“Mrs Milligan’s Marvelous Marmalade and other spreads” is the 2019 summer season production by the Havelock Theatre Company. It features two recent one-act plays by Rick Edmonds.
They both have as a theme the “perfect crime”, but rather than the classic who-dunnits, are more how-and-what-dunnits, and they both explore character changes as relationships develop, intensify, and are challenged.
Mrs Milligan’s Marvelous Marmalade is set in the home of a happily married and recently retired couple, and centers around the character changes of the main protagonist, Jonathan Masters.
An Affair of the Art is set in an art gallery, and centers around the developing and changing relationship between the two main protaganists, Jasper and Sandi, and their relationship to one particular work of art.
While both plots have something obviously happening at a deeper level, it is not until the final scene of both plays that the audience discovers what.
