Russian Spring:The Yalta Game & The Bear

Directed by: Nanette Frew
Summary: This double bill of two short plays, written by Ireland's greatest living playwright Brian Friel, is based on a story and a one-act play by Anton Chekhov. In The Yalta Game, an innocent game at the famous Black Sea resort turns into a passionate affair for a Moscow bank clerk and a young married woman. In The Bear a man-hating widow and a woman-hating creditor square off over one of her deceased husband's debts. Both plays explore the love that affirms life in the face of convention and routine, the mundane and the commonplace.

Arsenic and Old Lace

Directed by: Jennifer Willison
by special arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd
Summary: In this macabre comedy, the two elderly Brewster sisters extend their well intentioned but lethal charity towards lonely old men seeking lodgings, assisted by their nephew who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt. Add a second nephew, a drama critic recently engaged to be married, his murderous brother who looks like Boris Karloff, a gangland surgeon and various local police, and we enter the madcap farce that became the much loved film adaptation with Cary Grant.

The Memory of Water

Directed by: Patsy Templeton
Summary: "Even water has memory - you can dilute and dilute but the pertinent thing remains......it still exerts influence" Three sisters meet on the eve of their mother's funeral. As the differences in their own memories of their childhood are revealed, conflicts and tensions emerge, and the sparks fly. But ultimately it is the fabric woven in that early family life that finally allows them to forgive each other and become united. This cleverly written play will resonate, particularly if you have siblings!
