MAUREEN: THE HARBINGER OF DEATH (a work in progress)

May 14-18 7pm KXT

Written and Performed by Jonny Hawkins
Co-conceived and Directed by Nell Ranney
Designed by Isabel Hudson

The phone rings, it’s your mother, “I need you to check in on an old friend of mine. Her name is Maureen and she’d love some company”. You jump on a train, climb the stairs, knock on the door and feign your most polite smile, preparing yourself for an obligatory visit. However the ‘old lady’ you expect to meet and the person on the other side of the door have very little in common.

Maureen is a celebration of those who refuse to be invisible in a world of people who look the other way. Inspired by the work of surrealist Leonora Carrington, and a Kings Cross working-class glamour queen; Maureen is full of life and accepting of death, inhabiting the space between perception and reality.


UP THE GUTS

May 14-18 8:30pm KXT

Written by Jane Mahady and Suzannah Kennett Lister
Directed by Suzannah Kennett Lister
Performed by Jane Mahady

Do people make a place, or place a people?

June’s been given a story to tell, and she’ll be touring the country to do it. What she doesn’t know is that soon enough there’ll be a story to tell about her.

With nothing but their good selves and the smell of an oily rag, Mahady and Kennett Lister set out to examine who we are, what we’ve become and what we owe to each other. In a style reminiscent of epic poetry, barbeque banter, and a theatre sports enthusiast on her third Red Bull, Up the Guts launches an unexpected assault on Australia’s calcified national mythology.
