BRINK PRODUCTIONS in association with Adelaide Festival Centre presents THE BRIDGE OF SAN LUIS REY
BY THORNTON WILDER
10 JUL – 25 JUL 2020, SPACE THEATRE
There is a land of the living and a land
of the dead, and the bridge is love…
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.

THEATRE PUBLIC presents THE BLEEDING TREE
By Angus Cerini
26 AUG – 5 SEP 2020
NGUNYAWAYITI THEATRE, TANDANYA ABORIGINAL CULTURAL INSTITUTE
A shot rings out across the night.
A mother and her daughters take revenge on a life of misery, greeting the man of the house with a crack on the shins and a bullet in the neck. But what do they do with the body?
Angus Cerini’s multi award-winning play The Bleeding Tree is a contemporary gothic tale of revenge that is fierce, poetic, heart-breaking and irreverently funny.
Directed by Corey McMahon (1984, After Dinner), The Bleeding Tree features Elena Carapetis (A View from the Bridge, After Dinner) and Elizabeth Hay (Volpone, The Gods of Strangers).
This is the South Australian premiere of The Bleeding Tree presented by Theatre Republic.
