The extra Friends benefit? Share supper and chat with the cast!
FEVER is written by Andrew Bovell, Christos Tsiolkas, Melissa Reeves and Patricia Cornelius, Directed by Rachael Maza and performed by Aboriginal Performance students in the Enright Studio.
This year the multi award-winning Racheal Maza returns to WAAPA to direct the Aboriginal Performance graduates in this challenging, hyper real production.
Fever comprises four plays –
Bovell's 'The Chair', Tsoilkas' 'Psalms', Cornelius' 'Blunt' and Reeves' 'Savant'. All deal with various issues of race, class, culture and environment. ▪The Chair▪In a desolated house, a lonely woman is confronted by an intruder. She ties him to a chair, but gives him the chance to win his freedom by moving her with his story. ▪Savant▪Members of a deeply depressed and morbid community gather nightly to whinge about how good things used to be. They believe the cause of their misery is an evil baby born to a frightened pair of teenagers. ▪Psalms▪Two young childhood friends quickly become enemies when their country is plunged into civil war. ▪Blunt▪A group of women live on a desolate landscape where nothing grows. They fetch a baby out of the river and give it every chance. And what does it do? 🗣️ "…much of Fever's appeal lies in its courageous lack of certainty, conveyed by the deliberately non-naturalistic and non-specific mode of performance. It states its case, it is true, but leaves much up to the audience to decide." - Helen Thomson, The Age.
