Sometimes, the most charitable intentions go awry!

A conniving, narcissistic, backstabbing female CEO is the central character in Harbour Theatre’s production of CHARITABLE INTENT, winner of the 2002 Best New Play in the annual Green Room Awards.

Australia’s most prolific and awarded playwright David Williamson has used his dislike of management to bring humour to this, his final play in the Jack Manning trilogy.

Directed by reknowned community theatre personality Christine Ellis who has a passion for directing plays that have strong roles for women, CHARITABLE INTENT deals with many workplace issues that people may yet face or have faced during their working lives, with humour and humanity.

A new CEO has been appointed to a not-for-profit charity and her modern corporate methods cause conflict with the staid, long term members of the organisation. The new CEO seems oblivious to the meaningless nature of corporate lingo but somehow seems to have captivated the Chairperson and the Board with her textbook management drivel. The harmonious operation of the organisation has now become dysfunctional to the extent that the board requires a conflict resolution session, in an attempt to restore balance. The meeting spirals out of control to the extent that there are head-to-head confrontations and workplace bullying becomes obvious.. One of the appealing features of this play is having a classic soap opera style nasty central character who the audience can metaphorically hiss and boo at. The CEO seems oblivious to the chaos caused and demands a mass sacking of the employees. Will the truth be revealed and rescue a workplace in disarray?

CHARITABLE INTENT is a powerful play that shows the contradictions that erupt as workplace values change.
