British writer Alice Birch won the George Devine Award (for a promising playwright) in 2014, with her work Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. Composed of a series of vignettes, the piece deconstructs those frameworks which we often take so for granted that we don’t notice them until they are flipped: language; work; mothering; marriage and so forth.
Quantum physics, geo-politics and teen rebellion crash headlong into one another in House of Sand’s Welcome the Bright World, an Umbrella production with the State Theatre Company of South Australia. Stephen Sewell’s 1983 play traffics in big words; big themes; big emotions.
CJ McLean sits down with Welcome the Bright World director Charles Sanders, ahead of the upcoming House Of Sand production in collaboration with State Theatre Company of South Australia.
There are plenty of great performances by the marvellous cast in the many roles in this powerful and important piece of theatre. It only has a short run, so don’t delay in booking your tickets.
There's no light and shade in Charles Sanders' dark cabaret about the search for love. He sings Amy Winehouse's Love is a Losing Game, which sums up the mood of this miserable ode to despair.
The depth of emotion shown through the monologues and the music is further proof of why Sanders was awarded the Adelaide Critics Circle’s Emerging Artist Award in 2011.
An ebullient arts community celebrated the 2011 ACC Awards, the ACColades, at the Arts Theatre, with Steve Saffell, CEO of Country Arts SA as guest presenter.

The four performers give a powerful and committed engagement with the subject matter, with very good individual performances as well as some great ensemble work.
This is a magnificent piece of theatre and definitely should not be missed, but hurry to book as seating is limited and the production closes on Sunday.
