the publicity blurb for the Queensland Theatre Company's forthcoming
production of Cooking with Elvis, there is no mention
of the fact that the playwright, Lee Hall, also wrote the
Oscar-nominated screenplay for the hugely successful British
film Billy Elliot.
does, however, carry a warning that the play contains explicit
sex scenes, nudity, language and themes that may offend, not
to mention "gratuitous Elvis numbers". Perhaps it's
just as well QTC isn't playing the Billy Elliot card, for
the play is very different.
