The year kicks off with a local Lane Cove original musical play. Vicki, by Rodney Ivan Stewart (Devil May Care) is a tale of four survivors of a nuclear attack – a poet, a painter, a scientist and a robot. They discuss art, science, logic, love, lust, feelings, reason and yes, a nuclear explosion during three weeks of zany, serious and amusing living together in a nuclear fall-out shelter.
Featuring the talents of Zach Selmes, Lucy Nielson, Cerise Kofoed and Laura Bucci.
Directed by Shane Bates.
From the team who brought you the acclaimed production of Holding The Man in 2017, a contemporary musical that explores how one suburban household copes with crisis. With powerful lyrics and an electrifying score this production shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s secret world intact. Directed by Kathryn Thomas, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning musical explores the issues of grief, suicide, drug abuse, ethics in modern psychiatry and the underbelly of suburban life. Considered one of the best musicals of the 21st century, this sometimes dark, honest, funny and brutally moving musical should not be missed.
May delights with the classic bawdy romp, She Stoops to Conquer by Sir Oliver Goldsmith. When Marlow mistakes Kate’s house for an inn and treats her father like an inn-keeper, things are not going so smoothly for him. With her brother causing mischief, her father insulted and her mother plotting a marriage that nobody wants, it’s no wonder Kate has to stoop to conquer. This production belongs to that small group of classic English comedies which never go out of fashion. Directed by Peter Farmer (Away, The 39 Steps, Shadowlands, Charley’s Aunt). This production is a true delight, a sweet concoction of Goldsmith’s sly language and lovable characters. He has given us a rarity – a comedy that, like Shakespeare’s comedies, has withstood the test of time.
Directed by Peter Farmer.
