If the truth canít be known, who do you trust, whose side will you take?

When Amis husband is found dead in his bed one morning, uncertainty arises. Did he take his own lifeor did she do it? Set in a middle class suburban home, Quandary looks at the effect of this tragic event, not only on Ami but also on the lives and relationships of all who come in contact with it, her best friend, her family and the police.


Quandary is part of a season of new plays written
by two locals Judith Boyd and David Cole. The plays have
been in development for the last three years with dramaturg
Francesca Smith. Cat Wilson has been working with Judith
and the cast since May this year, developing a final draft of
the script for this premiere production opening 26th August
in the Lieder Foyer.


Starring Lieder favourites Michelle McAleer,
Pauline J Mullen, Martin Saunders, Kathy Campbell, Anne
Gaul, Matthew Doherty as well as newcomer to the Lieder
Stage Lisa Mansill.


Cat began her career in theatre at the Lieder in the
early 90?s performing in shows such as Murder at the
Vicarage and Dinkum Assorted. In 1997 she studied acting
at The Actors Centre in Surry Hills and went on to be the
General Manager there for three years. In 2003 she
completed the Graduate Diploma of Dramatic Art Ė
Directing at the VCA school of Drama. Since then she has
worked as Assistant Director with Julian Meryck at
Melbourne Theatre Company on their production of
Memory of Water and as director and dramaturg on several
independent theatre productions. Currently she is also
working at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image
(ACMI) in Melbourne and is reading scripts for
