Patrick Hamilton’s psychological thriller still holds up well today
A provocative new festival piece, a premiere Australian work, re-imagined international and Australian classics and a post-modern masterpiece that rocks the very foundations of theatre itself are just some of the highlights making up State Theatre Company South Australia’s 2020 season, the first program from its new artistic director Mitchell Butel.
Before the official Program Launch, Matthew Mitcham and Catherine Fitzgerald announced the 2014 Feast Festival program.
The annual Feast Comedy Debate centred on two teams of comedians who debate either for or against the chosen topic. This year's topic was "Same Sex Marriage – Why Bother?"
This is the last production from State Theatre for this year and they could not ask for a bigger finish. Better still is the fact that it is involving so many South Australians.
This is a very moving, informative and thought provoking hour that will stay with you for a long time.
Make sure that you get to see this production while you can. It is a moving and powerful celebration of love in a production filled with marvellous performances.
Martin Crimp's version moves the action from the Court of Louis XIV to a London hotel room, where Célimène becomes Jennifer, a 22 year old Hollywood actress, notable more for her lack of clothing in her films than her acting skills
