"If others tell us something we make assumptions, and if they don't tell us something we make assumptions to fulfill our need to know and to replace the need to communicate. Even is we hear something and we don't understand we make assumptions about what it means then believe the assumptions. We make all sorts of assumptions because we don't have the courage to ask questions." - Miguel Ruiz
The Blonde the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead is a one-woman show by Australian playwright Robert Hewett.
An adulterous husband, a meddlesome neighbor, and a dropped ice-cream cone are among the circumstances that combine to shatter the life of suburban housewife Rhonda Russell. Everyone has their own story to tell about the day that Rhonda went berserk in the shopping mall. And who’s to know where the truth lies? With the best friend who might have egged her on? With the husband who denies responsibility? Or with the victim’s family whose lives were changed forever? And then there’s the story of the vengeful redhead herself, but she’s probably the least likely to know what really happened. In this gripping adventure, the world is turned upside down in a disastrous and comic sequence of events. As the intrigue unfolds, seven different characters give a fresh twist of perspective - all played by one multi-faced performer.
