Presented by Brink Productions, in association with Adelaide Festival Centre
By Thornton Wilder | Adapted by Phillip Kavanagh
It’s 18th century Peru. An ancient Incan rope bridge collapses sending five strangers plummeting to their deaths and unleashing a fabulist’s tale of conspiracy, seduction and betrayal. In this thrilling reimagining of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer-winning novel, Adelaide’s celebrated Brink Productions brings their unique theatricality to a daisy chain of stories and coincidence that leads five strangers to meet their fate. The incomparable Paul Capsis, in an extraordinary act of theatrical shamanism, inhabits the role of Camila Perichole, the greatest actress of her age, as she draws the audience into an epic narrative that ultimately reveals her own heartbreaking story.
Co-commissioned by Adelaide Festival Centre’s Adelaide Guitar Festival.
