A famous magician once said that ‘’the only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck’’, then Colin Willis is indeed a great man. After a sudden injury last year, Colin is back and ready to take the Club Room stage this April. Who is Colin? Well he was only the high commissioner of Australia in Malta. He came for work, fell in love, left his job and stayed on to continue his life passion, the theatre, where he became a mainstay in local theatre productions. 

A Stroke of Bad Luck is a biographical piece based on the life of Colin, who suffered a stroke some years ago, after relocating to Malta. This is a personal and intimate portrait of a man and his partner, seasoned actress and director Nanette Brimmer as they come to grips with their new normal. The production also marks established theatre director and former Associate Director of the National Theatre of Scotland, Simon Sharkey’s debut in Malta as co-writer to Nanette Brimmer and director of the show.
