|GLEN STREET THEATRE ANNOUNCES 2013 SEASON|
|Wednesday, 19 September 2012 12:11|
The season kicks off with Managing Carmen, the brand new comedy by Australia's most successful playwright David Williamson. A play about football, identity and slingbacks, Managing Carmen is laugh out loud comedy for lovers of football and designer dresses alike. Then, David Denborough's Sundowner, starring the much-loved Helen Morse, explores the complicated realm of memory through a powerful combination of theatre, dance and physicality in a story of lament and at times, grief and sorrow.
Next in line is Elizabeth Coleman's deliciously funny and sweetly dark play It's My Party (And I'll Die If I Want To). A comedy of anxiety, absurdity and occasionally terror, Henri Szeps stars in what promises to be one of the highlights of the 2013 season. Following this, audiences will be spoilt with a glittering evening of delight, wit, song and dance in the highly entertaining, strangely familiar and surprisingly touching Noël and Gertie, based on the legendary on and off stage partnership of Noël Coward and Gertrude Lawrence.
Australian legend Uncle Jack Charles offers an insight into his fascinating life as a veteran actor, musician, Koori elder, activist and, until recently, heroin addict and cat-burglar. Nominated for Helpmann Awards for Best Director and Best Male Actor in a Play, Jack Charles v The Crown is a theatrical delight and a celebration of one of the country's near forgotten treasures.
In 2013 Glen Street is thrilled to be hosting version 1.0 and their hit production The Table of Knowledge - a hilarious and utterly compelling interrogation of power, corruption and good governance in contemporary Australia. The theatre will also host the incomparable Catherine Alcorn, singing the hits of Bette Midler in her critically acclaimed cabaret The Divine Miss Bette.
Following the overwhelming response they received at Glen Street this year, Australia's leading taiko drumming group, TaikOz returns in 2013, this time with prominent Melbourne DJ/Producer, Max Royce-Hampton in TaikoDeck - a visually spectacular show features more than 20 taiko drums and percussion instruments including traditional Japanese bamboo flutes, bells, gongs and cymbals.
And rounding out a year of phenomenal entertainment are those wizards of satirical comedy, the team from The Wharf Revue.
