It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single FIFO man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wifey.
At the Longbourn estate in Joondalup, you’ll find a family of modest means: five daughters, an eccentric father and a doting mother. The Bennets.
Their matriarch, Mrs Bennet, has grand ambition for her girls; she seeks a prize. A prize that would mean security, prosperity and status for generations to come; what all young ladies must certainly dream of – a hubby with a decent job, nice house and a bunch of cash.
Our tale begins as word of a couple of young bachelors that have just taken up residence nearby at the Netherfield Park estate in Hillarys has reached the Bennets. What’s more, rumour has it that these two boys are rather successful FIFO workers.
Decent job? Check. Nice house? Check. Bunch of cash? Check. Gone two-out-of-every-three weeks? Bonus! The time has come for the Bennet girls to mobilise.
Observe a tale of hapless romance, wilful pride and misbegotten prejudice.
A tale with far, far too many dances.
A tale that exclaims the friction between practicality and idealism.
A tale that asks, “do we settle for what we believe is enough? Or do we accept the risk, strive for more and seek something infinitely more unrealistic… Love?”
