Assassins

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman

Winner of 5 Tony Awards in 2004, Assassins uses the premise of a murderous carnival game to produce a revue-style portrayal of men & women who attempted (successfully or not) to assassinate the Presidents of the United States.  The music varies to reflect the popular music of the eras depicted. A haunting and gripping story told by those who believe "Everyone has the right to be happy..."

"..."Assassins" offers no pat answers.  Rather, its raison d'etre as a musical is to force you into and out of complacency".
- Jesse Green, The New York Times

Les Liaisons Dangereuses

by Christopher Hampton

The Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, rivals who use sex as a weapon of humiliation and degradation, all the while enjoying their cruel games.  Their targets are the virtuous (and married) Madame de Tourvel and Cecile de Volanges, a young girl who has fallen in love with her music tutor, the Chevalier Dancerny.  In order to gain their trust, Merteuil and Valmont pretend to help the secret lovers so they can use them later in their own treacherous schemes.

"Christopher Hmapton turns Cholderlos de Laclos's 1782 novel into a play that marvellously shows sexual thrill and illuminates exploitation." - Susannah Clapp, The Observer

Arsenic and Old Lace

By Joseph Kesselring

Arsenic and Old Lace is a black comedy by American playwright Joseph Kesselring.  The plot centers on the Brewster family, a once elite American bloodline that has now descended into homicidal insanity.  Exploring themes including family loyalty, nature vs nurture, and whether we can ever truly break away from our Family's influence.  Praised for it's dark, screwball comedy tone, Arensic and Old Lace holds it's grasp on being a killer comedy.

"...This need to laugh in the face of darkness that a comedy such as Joseph Kesselring's play Arsenic and Old Lace has such an enduring quality" - Maja Stefanovska
