Drill Hall's 2010 line-up

CHATROOM, Uncle Vanya and Honour are just three of the productions set for the Mullumbimby Drill Hall Theatre Company for their 2010 season.

Drill Hall has just unveiled its upcoming program and if the quality of this year’s productions is anywhere near the calibre of last year; we’re set for some quality theatre.

The first production of the year is Enda Walsh’s play, Chatroom, directed by Michael Borenstein.

The play is an exploration of the relationships of six teenagers brought together in the anonymity and freedom of Internet chat rooms. It will hit the stage in April.

May’s production is Elizabeth Coleman’s comedy, It’s My Party (and I’ll Die If I Want To), directed by Jennie Hicks. This is a laugh-out-loud Aussie comedy – involving family squabbles, jealousies and competition where home truths are disclosed and the action ranges from the poignant to the outrageous.

July will produce Anton Chekov’s classic tragi-comedy of ennui and frustrated desires, Uncle Vanya, directed by Mike Russo. This is a new adaptation by American playwright David Mamet.

Planned for August is Wendy Wasserstein’s comedy, The Sisters Rosensweig, directed by Georgia Martin. It’s a play that focuses on the lives of three Jewish-American sisters and their quest for love and fulfilment.

September sees Joe Orton’s outrageous comedy of perverse sexual desire and frustration, Entertaining Mister Sloane, directed by Mike Russo.

The 2010 season ends in November with Joanna Murray-Smith’s play of love and betrayal, Honour, directed by Greg Aitken. Joanna is one of Australia’s most successful current playwrights.

The group has also planned a series of acting and performance workshops this year to be presented by Greg Aitken and Mike Russo. For more information call Mike Russo on 6684 4886.
