It's Nature vs Man in Blue Room Theatre's opening psychological-eco-drama, "The Trembling Giant"
From emerging Perth theatre company Those Who Love You, the fine folks who brought us The Secret Garden Project, comes an exciting season-opener for the Blue Room Theatre: "The Trembling Giant". Written and directed by local talent Monty Sallur, The Trembling Giant is an emotional cautionary fable about humanity's relationship with nature.
Here's the synopsis:
"Gum, banksia, eucalyptus, golden wattle. What kind of world is it where these trees don’t exist? Maybe ours.
In a world where natural resources are coveted, information is currency and the air is poisonous, how do you create change?
For Margot and Flint, change starts with a seed. A seed that brings hope, a seed that brings life, a seed that brings a tree. But it’s not easy caring for the worlds most valued resource; the stakes are your life and not everyone is ready to give theirs away so easily."
"The Trembling Giant" opens on 9 August 2016 at The Blue Room Theatre.
A free Q&A will be hosted after the performance on Wednesday 17 August for ticketholders. Make sure you don't miss out!
