Bondi Legal cast at the beach

“Bondi Legal” is a play that’s about to open at the Bondi Pavilion.  Writer Tony Laumberg and director David Spicer come into the studio to tell us about how this play came about and what we can expect to see.

Tony Laumberg is a solicitor and the play is based on one of his court cases about a Bondi mother suing a chemical giant company – with more than a few laughs thrown in for good measure.

With a talented cast, the play runs from 11-26 October. All details and tickets are available here.

Or you can see Tony with the cast on this clip.
