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!

With a heartfelt and witty anecdotal lyrical style blended with uproarious riffs, Sly Withers have often drawn comparison to the likes of Melbourne’s The Smith Street Band. No doubt a terrific outfit to be compared to, however the Sly boys were always eager to continue developing their own unique sound.
It’s quite the impressive feat Otiuh has pulled off here, summoning the atmosphere of an amiable summer night within that chilly venue.
We dwell for a moment on what it means to come from Albany and I mention the attempts of the local Famers Market to lay claim to her success. “Why not?” she chuckles. ”I think that’s why I sing so loud is because I had to project”. It makes sense that most Farmer’s Markets don’t come equipped with a fully-fledged PA System and fold back, Carla continues reminiscing, “That was such a great place to play – everyone would give me veggies in my guitar case”.
THE LINE by Co3 Australia casts light on the horrific past of Western Australia, specifically laws against Aboriginal people such as the Prohibited Area, which prevented them from entering into the City of Perth after 6:00 pm.
