Shows 14th of May until 4th of June!
Moya Productions and tackroom theatre are thrilled to present the UK premieres of Holiday by Raimondo Cortese and The Eisteddfod by Lally Katz. This double-bill showcases the work of two of the most exciting and contemporary Australian playwrights.
HOLIDAY is an existential musical comedy. Two grown-up men sit beside a child's paddling pool. Two open souls, they talk freely about life's oddities, and sing divine songs about the nature of love.
THE EISTEDDFOD is a fresh, poetic farce about an agoraphobic brother and sister, who create a fantasy world inside their own flat. They take abusive lovers, teach advanced level German and train hard to star in Macbeth for the upcoming eisteddfod - which threatens to explode their world forever.
Raimondo Cortese won the Australian Leadership Award in 2010 and awarded the Patrick White Fellowship by the Sydney Theatre Company in 2011 and has been cited by The Age as "one of the most exciting playwrights around.” Cortese won the Green Room award for Best Australian Writing for Holiday.
Lally Katz has won numerous awards including Green Room and Melbourne Fringe Awards. The Eisteddfod won the The New York International Fringe Festival Producer's Choice Awards. In 2011 Katz was cited as the most produced playwright in Australia under Shakespeare!
Moya Productions and tackroom theatre’s previous production Mrs Lowry and Son won great acclaim including being Critics’ Choice in both the The Telegraph and The Times.
**** The Telegraph “This little gem of a play deserves a substantial throng”
**** The Times ‘ A finely detailed, psychologically complex double portrait. Recommended.’
