Autumn Production 2015 - "True Colours" -
My Apology by Woody Allen, directed by Luca Manganelli
Socrates – Scott Holland
Agathon – Isabel Byrne
Simmias – Michael Abi-Saab
The play is a surreally comic re-make of Socrates’ death, where the main character is still very attached to his mortal body. Starting as an almost serious philosophical debate, it quickly drifts to a grotesquely funny attempt to escape the death sentence.
Bill – David Laurie
Betty – Billy Gilbert
In this short comic play Betty and Bill meet by chance in a café, and begin negotiating the maze of wrong things to say on a first encounter. Awkward! Wouldn’t you just love to be able to re-phrase those clumsy chat-up lines?
Sand to the Egyptians by J.P.S. Yates, directed by John Hyland and Michelle Schirpa
Natalie – Danielle Zammit
Smooth operator, James, makes a real splash with Natalie at a speed dating event. In five minutes she discovers that he is a charming, attentive individual with a fascinating and dangerous career (police negotiator), a first class degree from Cambridge University and the surname McVitie - as in the biscuits. However James is not all he seems, but then neither is Natalie.
Syrinx by Kate Mosse, directed by Christine Archer-Lockwood
Marion Knowles – Zuzana Cox
Sarah Peters – Rita Felder
Susan Winston – Elizabeth Shaw
Julie Peters (Sarah’s mother) – Diana Zuger
The play is set in a school principal's office, before and after a school prize-giving ceremony. School principal (Marion Knowles) is about to leave the school and wishes to put closure to an unfortunate episode involving a student that happened a few years earlier.
