Love Triangle: An evening of one-act plays
7.30pm, 25 January (one performance only)
Ron Hurley Theatre, Seven Hills Hub, Seven Hills
Helmed by the directors of Corporation Theatre and Minola Theatre, and featuring a strong ensemble of local talent, this is a one-off theatrical event exploring themes of love and fidelity, and how these have changed – or haven’t – over the past century. Love Triangle consists of three one-act plays:
HALF AN HOUR (1913)
Written by J. M. Barrie
Directed by Kat Dekker
Featuring Hannah Little, Brendan James, Steven James, Luke Diamond and Rachel Layt
How much can one life change in half an hour? Trapped in a decadent but loveless marriage, Lady Lilian seizes the opportunity to make a fresh start, but fate has a mind of its own. J. M. Barrie’s dark farce explores themes of love, fidelity, and class within a world of strict social and moral assumptions.
‘Astrid’ from EIGHT (2008)
Written by Ella Hickson
Directed by Luke Rimmelzwaan
Featuring Siobhan Finniss and Ryan Goodwin
What does it take to make yourself visible to the person who thinks they know you inside out? Ella Hickson’s monologue, from her award-winning collection EIGHT, considers the motives that drive someone to infidelity, and whether the consequences are always what we expect.
Written and performed by Bianca Butler Reynolds
With directorial assistance from Kat Dekker
Is a love that changes your mind about commitment strong enough to hear the whole truth? This raw new monologue from Bianca Butler Reynolds examines the moment in every relationship where we must choose to be the person we think can be loved, or the person we really are.
