MALTHOUSE THEATRE: ALL IN ARE YO U WITH US?

2020 is a milestone for Malthouse Theatre – 30 years of Melbourne’s most provocative theatre company occupying one of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings.

Throughout these 30 years, Malthouse Theatre has created a community that values the alchemy of artists and audiences coming together. Season 2020 is a forging of all that we believe in: new voices asking urgent questions, classic stories reinvented, and international collaborations alongside hyperlocal legends. In 2020 Malthouse Theatre is going ALL IN. Are you with us?

‘EXCEPTIONALLY FUNNY… GLORIOUS ABSURDITY… MAKES YOU HEAR EVERY LINE AFRESH.’ —TH E GUARDIAN M E R LY N THEATRE BY / Oscar Wilde ADAPTED BY / Jon Haynes, Jude Kelly & David Woods CAST / Jon Haynes, David Woods SET & COSTUME DESIGN / Zoë Atkinson ORIGINAL DIRECTION / Jude Kelly Malthouse Theatre presents the Ridiculusmus production of The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.

In Oscar Wilde’s most famous comedy of lies, Jack and Algy thrive in double lives (as Ernest) to find the lover they desire (in earnest). When questions of family heritage threaten their romantic desires, the gents question whether style really trumps sincerity. Here, two multi-award-winning daredevils— David Woods and Jon Haynes—gleefully act out every role, tumbling chaotically through impossible costume changes. The beating heart of Wilde’s humanity exposes itself between these ludicrous theatrics. In 2006, when Woods and Haynes first brought this production to Melbourne, Malthouse Theatre audiences fell out of their seats in laughter. Now, the Ridiculusmus team triumphantly return to double down on the hilarious dishonesty.

GREY ARIAS A RAMBUNCTIOUS MATCH MADE ON EGGSHELLS

BECKETT THEATRE DEVISED & CREATED BY / Adrienne Truscott & Le Gateau Chocolat CAST / Adrienne Truscott, Le Gateau Chocolat Malthouse Theatre presents Grey Arias by Adrienne Truscott and Le Gateau Chocolat.

Le Gateau Chocolat (Black Rider: The Casting of the Magic Bullets) is a man. Adrienne Truscott (Wild Bore) is a woman. Le Gateau Chocolat is a gay, black, English-Nigerian man and drag artiste. Adrienne Truscott is a cis white feminist American female performance artist. Le Gateau Chocolat is a multi-award-winning, plussized, bearded, drag diva feminist. Adrienne Truscott is a multi-award-winning comedian and provocateur who enjoys chocolate cake, up to a point. They are dear friends and here, as in everyday life, they perform a multiplicity of identities: perceived, lived and projected. As banter turns personal, political debates intersect, grey areas are exposed, and grey arias intoned. In between big show numbers, they spring rhetorical traps designed to catch any who overstep the blurred lines of political correctness and interrogate the meaning and boundaries of allyship. When the faggot meets the feminist they ask: how does one walk the fine line that delineates marginalised perspectives?

MACBETH

(THIS IGNORANT PRESENT)

‘ONE OF THE FEW OVATIONS FOR WHICH I HAVE UNRESERVEDLY STOOD.’ —TH E I N DEPEN DENT ( FOR G ATZ ) M E R LY N THEATRE CONCEIVED BY / Scott Shepherd from the play by William Shakespeare DIRECTION / Paul Lazar CAST INCLUDES / Scott Shepherd, Zahra Newman SET DESIGN / Eric Dyer SET & PROP ENGINEER / Joe Silovsky MOVEMENT / Elizabeth DeMent Co-Produced by Malthouse Theatre and ArKtype (USA).

Page 12—13

Far from Scotland, a man tinkering in his cellar has assembled a cage-like contraption from hoarded junk, where something wicked is being stirred up. What started as a hobby evolves into a battle for domestic dominance, as the darkness of Shakespeare’s tragedy curls its fingers around the heart of a suburban family. Two actors and a child conjure the entirety of Shakespeare’s spectacle. New York theatre legend Scott Shepherd (The Young Pope, Elevator Repair Service’s Gatz) stars as Macbeth, turning himself inside out as he devours leader, relative and onlooker. Australian Zahra Newman (Wake in Fright) co-stars as a Lady Macbeth forging a new future. A dangerous and adrenaline-fuelling production is staged in an electrified set, every gesture made creates a ricochet of sparks. Directed by Paul Lazar (Big Dance Theater, The Wooster Group), Macbeth unites Shakespeare and some of the world’s most inventive theatre-makers to expose how alarmingly possible it is to arrive at an ignorant present.

REVITALISE WITH VITAMIN K

BECKETT THEATRE BY / Ra Chapman DIRECTION / Bridget Balodis CAST INCLUDES / Maude Davey, Susanna Qian SET & COSTUME DESIGN / Romanie Harper LIGHTING DESIGN / Amelia Lever-Davidson DRAMATURGY / Mark Pritchard Malthouse Theatre presents K-Box. Commissioned by Malthouse Theatre through the Living Now program, supported by Australia Council for the Arts and the Malcolm Robertson Foundation.

A 30-something Korean adoptee finds the raucous and riotous side of family in this surreal comedy. Lucy fled her manic Melbourne routine to find calm in the country. But the home of her adoptive white baby-boomer parents ain’t the place for peace and quiet. Enter Kim Han, a charismatic K-pop star making a surprise visit to rural Victoria, who tips Lucy’s crisis into a complete tailspin. But there’s more to this than karaoke. As the evening rockets towards a climax, Lucy will raise the roof with the ones who raised her. Ra Chapman—one of Malthouse Theatre’s 2018/19 writers in residence—makes her mainstage debut with this caustic and acutely comical new play.

IS THIS A ROOM ‘DAMN, THE REAL WORLD IS A HELL OF A WRITER.’ — ARTFORUM

BECKETT THEATRE

The true FBI story of Reality Winner: yoga teacher, cat lover, national security threat.

CONCEPT & DIRECTION / Tina Satter

June 2017: Arriving home, Reality finds a team of armed federal agents waiting. They’re investigating a leak. Classified information has got out about Russian hacking to influence the U.S. presidential election.

CAST / Becca Blackwell, Emily Davis, TL Thompson, SCORE / Sanae Yamada COSTUME DESIGN / Enver Chakartash SET DESIGN / Parker Lutz LIGHTING DESIGN / Thomas Dunn PRODUCTION & STAGE MANAGEMENT / Randi Rivera CREATIVE PRODUCER / Meiyin Wang Malthouse Theatre presents Tina Satter/Half Straddle’s (USA) Is This A Room: Reality Winner Verbatim Transcription.

Reality lets the agents in. They chat. They reposition. Gradually, it becomes clear: this is an interrogation. The genuine FBI recording of Reality’s interview so struck Tina Satter that she adapted it, wordfor-word, as a ready-made script. Without any need for amendment, it plays so fantastically theatrically that it stands as testament to Reality’s real-world wit and complexity. The 2019 premiere season in New York was a sellout. In 2020, the Brooklyn-based ensemble of performers come to Malthouse Theatre to share an urgent, globally relevant message of agency, power and patriotism within the patriarchy.

Page 18—19

‘I am just going outside and may be some time’ said Oates tragically. Then he departed, with no intention to return, so as not to be a burden. Dutiful sacrifice. The mission continues. Melbourne theatre legends director Susie Dee and playwright Patricia Cornelius (SHIT, LOVE) continue their 30-year collaboration with this epic odyssey packed with drama and emotion. Robert Falcon Scott’s 1912 diary of his Antarctic adventure intertwines with a man in the present who also faces a struggle to survive. Like Scott, he is desperate to give the last leg of his life meaning, as he leads his pitiful party across a treacherous landscape. Dylan Thomas’ poem captures their journey sublimely when he wrote: ‘rage, rage against the dying of the light.’

Once considered ‘exotic’ trophies of antiquity, the bodily remains of Indigenous men, women and children served scientific theories of evolution and were prized objects displayed on mantelpieces. In the cover of darkness, grave robbers would pillage burial grounds, to sell Ancestral remains to the highest bidder. Thousands were sold. Today, they are still locked away. Some are on display in museums, while others are hidden deep within the bowels of museums, universities and homes. They are reminders of a brutal history we would rather forget. But now it is time to bring our people back to country. Through an epic story spanning 250 years, writer John Harvey (Heart is a Wasteland) draws us in with untold perspectives of macabre true histories and false justifications. In a directorial debut, Jason Tamiru joins forces with our Artistic Director Matthew Lutton for this immersive theatrical event that will give rise to how the repatriation of Ancestors can bring us closer to homecoming and healing.

PRIMEA FACI ‘A SEARING INDICTMENT OF THE LAW’S TREATMENT OF WOMEN.’ — SYDN EY MORN I NG H ERAL D

BECKETT THEATRE BY / Suzie Miller DIRECTION / Lee Lewis CAST / Sheridan Harbridge DESIGN / Renée Mulder LIGHTING DESIGN / Trent Suidgeest COMPOSITION & SOUND DESIGN / Paul Charlier Malthouse Theatre presents a Griffin Theatre Company production.

PRIMA FACIE / ˌprʌɪmə ˈfeɪʃi/ Latin origin: primus ‘first’ + facies ‘face’. Law: (1) On the face of it, or at first sight, there is enough evidence for a case to answer; (2) a prima facie case will prevail until contradicted or overcome by other evidence.

Young and super smart, Tessa is a defence barrister who has mastered the steely facade needed to be a winner. She takes witnesses apart like a hunter carving a kill. Things look good from the top. Working hard makes playing hard a great stress relief. After a few drinks Tessa hooks up with a colleague, yet what might become a hot romance suddenly spirals into a terrifying ordeal. As tables turn, Tessa finds herself cast in a very different role in the legal system. Once unflappable, she now grapples to find her way out from under the same shadow of doubt she herself so frequently cast in the past. Sheridan Harbridge (Calamity Jane) brings her acclaimed portrayal of Tessa to Malthouse Theatre in this taut and topical one-woman drama. Playwright Suzie Miller injects firsthand legal knowledge as a previously practicing lawyer into this timely invective directed at some shocking norms of Australian courts. #PRIMAFACIEMH20

IF TROUBLE AND MISCHIEF IS ALL YOU LIVE FOR…

M E R LY N THEATRE

From the streets of our city to the realm of the damned, come dance with the devil.

DIRECTION / Michael Kantor

Renowned performer Paul Capsis (Black Rider: The Casting of the Magic Bullets) is a hero of perversity. As ten plagues rain down on a cursed city, Paul conjures our angels and demons desperate with desires and murderous jealousies.

FEATURING / Paul Capsis FILM / Natasha Pincus TEXT / Tom Wright COMPOSITION & SOUND DESIGN / Jethro Woodward SET & COSTUME DESIGN / Anna Cordingley LIGHTING DESIGN / Paul Jackson CHOREOGRAPHY / Stephanie Lake

Swamped in startling imagery from awardwinning filmmaker Natasha Pincus and accompanied live by axeman Jethro Woodward, Paul burns through a song cycle of rapturous originals and infatuating classics from Blondie, Bob Dylan and Nina Simone. This exhilarating live show is part rock concert, part cinema and part prayer to the wild side. Let go of the halo and be seduced by this euphoric performance of sublime psychosis.

‘NIHILISTIC, FOUL-MOUTHED AND CALCULATED TO PLEASE ALMOST NO ONE.’ —THE AUSTRALIAN (FOR LOADED, NOVEL) BECKETT THEATRE ADAPTED BY / Dan Giovannoni & Christos Tsiolkas from the novel by Christos Tsiolkas DIRECTION / Stephen Nicolazzo CAST / Roy Joseph SET & COSTUME DESIGN / Eugyeene Teh LIGHTING DESIGN / Katie Sfetkidis COMPOSITION & SOUND DESIGN / Daniel Nixon Malthouse Theatre presents Loaded.

Page 28—29

The 1995 debut novel from Christos Tsiolkas (The Slap, Dead Europe, Barracuda) makes its mainstage premiere 25 years after the fact. Ari (Roy Joseph, Five Bedrooms) is 19, unemployed and aimless. He doesn’t want to be gay. He doesn’t want to be Greek. He doesn’t want to be anything. He finds an escape, of sorts, via sex, drugs and dance clubs. But, he doesn’t really fit in with the queens at The Peel any better than with family in his theía’s backyard. This is the story that established Tsiolkas as a provocative master of the written word. Adapted for film in the 1998 underground hit Head On, and now, in close collaboration with playwright Dan Giovannoni, Tsiolkas rewrites Ari’s odyssey for the stage with a 21st century perspective. Directed by Stephen Nicolazzo (Merciless Gods), this queer migrant history comes spilling out across the four corners of Melbourne.
