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!

Listen Out Perth is returning to HBF Arena for the second year, bringing a host of incredible talent to the west coast on 24th September.
Stella Donnelly is one of the most in-demand artists out of Perth right now, as both a solo artist and with her bands Boat Show and Bells Rapids. We were extremely privileged to get the chance to speak with her in the lead-up, and she was as lovely to talk to as her music is to listen to!
Fugue’s Arteries By Ancestry isn’t so much a play you ‘understand’ but rather one you witness and feel. It’s a visceral, often confronting performance that demands your attention and makes the most of it.
The Defenders will see three widely beloved street-level heroes - Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones - and Iron Fist teaming up to, presumably, defend. This is as good a time as any to rank each and every one of the Marvel Netflix shows.
Stakes. Character. Exciting action. Boom. For a few minutes, one of the guys who directed John Wick, David Leitch, took full command of his movie. It was beautiful if brief, and the only thing about Atomic Blonde worth remembering.
The Blue Room Theatre's An Almost Perfect Thing is an almost perfect combination of plot driven mind folly and uncannily human characterisation. If you’re ready to teeter on the edge of your seat with the insatiable hunger of suspense, now is your time.
Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets (hereafter Valerian) is a technically proficient movie with a plot you can't care much about.
Hot damn. The shortest episode in GoT history is also easily one of the most epic, rivalling Hardhome and the Battle of the Bastards in terms of pure fantasy spectacle. Howie and Rhys break down the latest Game of Thrones episode, “The Spoils of War”.
Bell Shakespeare have managed to deliver a sensitive, engrossing and downright funny adaptation of this oft-controversial play.
