Tale of love and AFL

REAL-life husband and wife and highly acclaimed stars David Ross Paterson and Cecelia Specht are taking on a new acting challenge in their latest production, Reserved Seating Only.

David Paterson, who plays footy fanatic Al, said the comedy told the story of an unlikely meeting of two very different people at an AFL game.

"Al turns up to the first game of the season only to find his usual neighbour in the members' reserved seating replaced by his missing mate's anti-football wife, Trina," he said.

"She divorced her husband and has inherited his reserved seat ticket and comes to the game to see what she believes broke up her marriage.

"She instantly locks horns with her ex-husband's footy mate, who becomes her reluctant companion, but as the game progresses the ice thaws and both begin to give ground."

Mr Paterson said audiences could expect to feel like they were at a real football ground during the show.

"We all get pretty passionate about our footy so the show has been a lot of fun to create," he said.

"People can expect one laugh after another.

"It's a comedy but it's also about relationships.

"It's a bit of a battle of the sexes as well."

Reserved Seating Only will be performed at Ipswich Civic Centre on Tuesday, September 1, from 7.30pm.
