Fallout: a sinister story
Fallout is an exhilarating new production brought to you by the cream of Australia’s emerging creative talent. The world premiere performance will be staged at the Old Fitzroy Theatre, Woolloomooloo as part of the Tamarama Rock Surfers 2012 season this October.
Fallout is a sinister coming of age story that illuminates humanities relationship with violence and human connection and explores how these things change as we turn from children into adults. Four teenagers find themselves trapped within a sealed off room, strewn with broken toys and dress up clothes. Watched by an unseen force they must make their own rules as they try to earn their freedom.
The production sees playwright Maree Freeman, a recent NIDA graduate and Associate Director for Milk Crate Theatre Company, combine forces with up-and-coming director Kip Williams, Directing Associate for the Sydney Theatre Company (Under Milk Wood), to bring you a show you don’t want to miss.
Co-produced by Fiona Boidi and Kate McBride, Fallout is an intriguing four-hander featuring the talent of Michele Durman as Delta (Packed to the Rafters), Amanda McGregor as Charlie (Sydney Theatre Company’s ‘Rough Draft #13: Underland), Gabriel Fancourt as Alpha (atyp’s Punk Rock) with Lizzie Schebesta playing the role of Bravo (Macbeth with the Bell Shakespeare Company).
Fallout incorporates elements of story telling, game-play and poetry to convey a haunted and dream-like tale seen through the exhausted eyes of youth. Fallout begs the question- what does it really take to grow up?
