AussieTheatre has two double passes to giveaway to Griffin Theatre Company’s new production of David Williamson’s Emerald City at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta on Thursday 10th December at 7.30pm.
Directed by Griffin Theatre Company’s Lee Lewis and with a set designed by legendary Australian artist Ken Done, the new production features a stellar cast including Helpman-Award winner Ben Winspear (Rake), Jennifer Hagan (Tartuffe), Lucy Bell (Murder Call), Mitchell Butel (Avenue Q), Kelly Paterniti (Home and Away) and Gareth Yuen (Happy Ending).
Part love letter, part hate mail to the glittering jewel of Oz, Emerald City is one of the best loved works by Australian theatre’s most beloved craftsman and commentator, David Williamson.
A fast-moving, wisecracking commentary, the play follows the story of Colin, a fading screenwriter, who is not long in Sydney – the ‘Emerald City’ – before he is seduced by its obsession with success. Teaming up with well-connected hack writer Mike, Colin finds himself in a tug of war between artistic ambition and big bucks. Fame and fortune – not to mention Mike’s criminally hot girlfriend – are up for grabs.
Three decades after it was written, Emerald City still captures the ballsy spirit of the ‘80s and retains its skewering sharpness – a panoramic view of the city that’s always prized beauty over brains.
Competition closes 2 December at 6pm AEDST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.
