Strange Happy Days

Happy Days (Queensland Theatre Company)

The Greenhouse, Billie Brown Studio

July 18 – August 15

From its descriptor, “Happy Days” appears somewhat unappealing; the entire play, which was written by Irish, avant-garde playwright Samuel Beckett in 1960, revolves around an older lady named Winnie, who, while half-buried by her desolate, apocalyptic environment, meticulously catalogues the contents of her purse (the only object she can reach), while her laconic, rarely-seen-or-heard husband Willie, occasionally crawls out of his hole to read from a tattered old newspaper. 616 more words

The 7 Stages of Grieving (Queensland Theatre Company and The Grin and Tonic Theatre Troupe)

The Greenhouse, Billie Brown Studio

March 17 – 31

“The 7 stages of Grieving” begins with a striking image of blue light bathing a centrally-situated mound of earth, upon which a small suitcase has been placed (containing, as is later revealed, the photographs of nameless deceased relatives.) It is a simple yet evocative picture that belies the show’s impressive staging, complex themes and tapestry of stories. 553 more words
