This show is as close as theatre comes to being a blood sport. Six new one-act plays are presented in Cornerstone College’s Atelier Theatre in Mount Barker. On Friday night, six playwrights, six directors, and a selected bunch of brave actors meet at the theatre. By a series of lucky draws, playwrights are paired with directors, actors are assigned to one of the six writer/director teams, and random topics allocated. The writers have until 6:00am Saturday morning (nine hours) to write their play and email it in. Directors get their scripts at 6:00am, and are back at the theatre an hour later to work with their allotted actors on the play until 8:00pm, when the curtain goes up and we see six new Australian one-act plays.
A young Mormon couple attend a party in New York and things eventually turn dark after they arrive in the big city, very dark.
The age-old adage comes to life in Rita Papillo's mildly amusing comedy-fantasy where three self-involved clients reveal their personal lives to a masseuse while taunted invisibly by two playful spirits that live within the walls.
This is a timely and relevant piece of theatre that deserves wider audiences; a schools tour would seem to be an ideal avenue.
