Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike – February 21-March 4 2018

A comedy hit by Christopher Durang revolving around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together, and takes place during a visit by the third, Masha, who supports them. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house.

Taking inspiration from works of Anton Chekhov and with the play’s setting in a cherry orchard, as well as the theme of the possible loss of an ancestral home, this play skilfully merges realism and farce – with Tony Award-winning success.

In this production, the audience is invited to step into the centre of the three siblings and fully immerse themselves in Christopher Durang’s most recent hit from the centre of the stage.

A collaboration with:

The Urban Hunt – March 15-18 2018

Inspired by American journalist Brendan Kiley’s article of the same name, this production concerns the hypocrisy regarding eating meat without being willing to kill an animal.

To challenge his own hypocrisy, Brendan decides to become a hunter…but rather than venturing out into the wilderness, he becomes a hunter in the city, where his prey includes squirrels, pigeons, garden snails etc., causing him to question the many contrasts he meets.

This production takes us from the Brazilian jungle to the streets of Copenhagen – because even here, we are surrounded by wildlife and even wilder hypocrisies.

 

Cast: Malte Frid-Nielsen
Directed by: Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen
Produced by: Down The Rabbit Hole Theatre

With the generous support of A.P. Møller Fonden.
