Sydney-based Sharpe, 66, plays Eve’s father Bassam. Sharpe was born in Leeds, UK, to a Hungarian mother and a Russian father. This real-life Jewish father of three, plays a Lebanese-Muslim father-of-the-bride whose stage daughter’s wedding ceremony is performed by  an Irish-Catholic celebrant.

Alex & Eve – The Wedding is being performed at the Factory Theatre, Marrickville. The play is directed by Michael Block.
