Caroline Ferguson (3AW) & Yvonne Malik in Pyramids & Pimm's - An Arab Awakening in a Toorak Cellar
At a high-society cocktail party in Toorak, Lay-lah Wazir, a trashy Egyptian belly dancer from Reservoir, is hired as the evening's entertainment. After her entertaining, yet artistically challenged performance, Lay-lah heads down to the cellar to change. Davina Smythe-Jones, a guest at the party, is an eccentric, eastern suburbs grand dame who considers it a travesty that the White Australia policy was abolished. Davina thinks of herself as a blue blood, favours equestrian apparel and likes a drink… When she sneaks down to the cellar to pilfer her host’s PIMM'S supply, the two find themselves trapped together.
Like oil and vinegar, these two don't traditionally mix but what happens when they’re given a good shake? By the time they're rescued, an unlikely bond is formed and a shocking discovery made!
Written and Performed by Caroline Ferguson & Yvonne Malik
Directed by Ross Daniels (Punked, Spontaneous Broadway)
