Kiss of the Gallery Guard opens when Amber (Cara Severino) starts her new job as guard in a big city gallery. Amber has fled the country determined to make her mark in the city and is intent on learning the stories behind the art work that she is meant to be guarding. An unlikely but amusing twist with Amber thwarting a robbery sees her gain fame, she then travels to London and New York, working at even more famous galleries and museums in her travels.

Themes of forgiveness and reinvention reared their heads through the piece as Amber was reluctant to resume relations with her mother, much later, when she is a mother herself, her attitude softens.

Acting varied in the play, the enthusiasm was apparent, but more nuance is needed for some of the roles, apart from just reciting the lines. More experience and more shows will no doubt see these problems becoming less so as time goes on.

Highlights? Amber acting out poses of some of the sculptures with an art patron: priceless.

Kiss of the Gallery Guard is presented by Scene Theatre Sydney and on until 26 May, for more information and tickets see: www.kissofthegallertguard.net.au

Featuring: Cara Severino, Chloë Schwank, Justin Amankwah and Jesse Northam.

Tech/Creative team: Carol Dance (writer), Murray Lambert (director), Anna Greig (assistant director) and Philip Eames (pianist).
