[ Select A Play: Two Gentlemen of Verona | As You Like It | A Streetcar Named Desire ]

Two Gentlemen of Verona
October 24 through November 10, 2007

Synopsis: (from Mixed Salad Productions)
Two Gentlemen of Verona, by William Shakespeare

The Two Gentlemen of Verona is a comedy by William Shakespeare from early in his career; it was probably written in the early 1590s.

It's the story of two friends who fall in love with the same woman. Will love of a woman threaten their friendship?

Our production sets the story among the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. We've replaced "Lords" and "Sirs" with first names to retain the correct rhythm of the language, and we've replaced outlaws in the forest, with drug dealers in a seedy nightclub, but otherwise the story and the language are all Shakespeare's.

A major theme of the play is the contest between friendship and love; is the relationship between two mates more important than that between lovers?

As You Like It
February 23, 25-29, 2008, and March 1, 3-4, 13-15, 2008

Synopsis: (from This Rough Magic Theatre and Film)
As You Like It, by William Shakespeare

Rosalind's father the duke has been overthrown and is in exile, and Rosalind finds herself exiled in the forest of Arden too, disguised as a farm boy and with her loyal cousin Celia in tow.

Around them, various stories of love and attraction are played out. Touchstone the clown finds himself a buxom goatherd. Silvius the shepherd waxes lyrical to his unwilling love Phoebe. The exiled duke is quietly in love with his new forest home.

Rosalind, too, has fallen - and fallen hard - for young Orlando, whom she's seen excel himself in a fight. It so happens that Orlando, too, is on the run in Arden. He meets a sharp-witted forest lad, who's willing to listen to his besotted moanings, and he opens his heart - not realising the slightly girlish boy is in fact his love, Rosalind.

And throughout, the cynical, melancholy Jaques keeps up a dry and tragic commentary. All the world's a stage, he says, and all the men and women merely players...

A Streetcar Named Desire
May 10, 13-17, and 20-24, 2008

Synopsis: (from University of Adelaide Theatre Guild)
A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams

"I don't want realism. I want magic."

In Stanley Kowalski and Blanche DuBois, Tennessee Williams' great Pulitzer Prize winning classic offers two characters who have challenged performers and fascinated audiences ever since Marlon Brando and Jessica Tandy first brought them to life in the play's 1947 Broadway debut.

The clash between Stanley's raw, macho brutality and Blanche's fading Southern gentility drives a passionate, compelling, steamy drama of delusion, repression, desire and desolation.
