The next production by Malanda Theatre Co. is something “completely different”. Drama Teacher Luke Vanni has adapted the classic “Epic Drama” by East German Bertolt Brecht for Tablelands audiences. This powerful and amusing play deals with the frailties of the human condition in a time of war. It is presented in epic style, faithful to the wishes of the playwright, who presented an alternative to the “method” acting style so popular after the Second World War. The audience is confronted by the issues in the plot rather than the personalities of the people portrayed.
The main features of the plot are classical and familiar. They occur in The Bible, in Italian mediaeval drama, and Chinese traditional drama. This presentation promises to be intriguing and entertaining. Group bookings of ten cost only $20. Concession night is opening night on 30th November – also $20. Family night on Sunday 2nd December costs only $10 for school age patrons and $25 for adults. Saturday 1st, and Friday to Sunday 7-9 December also $25. Starts at 7.30pm Fri/Sat and 5pm on Sundays. You cannot get in after the play starts because the audience has to cross the stage to get to their seats. So don’t be late! SEE YOU AT THE MAJESTIC!
