The Making of The Great Lover

 

When Maleny playwright Jo Denver wrote The Making of the Great Lover, about Edith Maud Hull, her husband Percy, and her daughter Cecil Winstanley Hull, she had no idea that Edith’s relatives lived in Australia. Naomi MacKinnon, from Cairns, is married to one of many Hull descendants in that area. Jo said that when she was writing about someone who lived in a little village in England she had no idea that any of the Hull family had been residing in far north Queensland around the Ingham area since 1871. The Making of The Great Lover enjoys its final performances tonight at 8pm and tomorrow at 2pm and 8pm. This new historical comedy is over-the-top Fifty Shades of Grey fun.
