A VIEW OF CONCRETE
FRINGE FACTORY @ QUEENS THEATRE
(THE BIG ROOM), PLAYHOUSE LANE
10 - 22 MARCH 2009 @ 9.15
The world is paved over, built up. The sky is filled with smog. There are no more trees, no more stars. Even the animals are killing themselves. And four young people are caught in the downward spiral.
Winner of the 2004 Wal Cherry Award,is an acerbic and witty look at the now. Young Victorian, Gareth Ellis, draws a picture of a present where nothing grows, nothing survives. Into this lifeless world four strange characters are thrown, each with their own unique escapism.
At times hilarious, at others darkly tragic, Ellis writing is always beautifully poetic, creating poignant images of desperate people that are guaranteed to haunt. Brought to life by a young team of theatre professionals and designers, this South Australian premiere is a raw mix of hunger and humour that will shatter the modern image of urbanity.
