The Aspirations of Daise Morrow

Filed under: Theatre, Gigs, General — site admin @ 2:52 pm

This October (10-24) at the Adelaide Festival Centre’s Space Theatre, Brink Productions presents the world premiere season of The Aspirations of Daise Morrow - a new work based on a short story by Australian writer and Nobel Prize recipient, Patrick White, featuring a cast led by Paul Blackwell and Kris McQuade - two of the country’s greatest theatre actors - and with live music by Zephyr Quartet.

The Aspirations of Daise Morrow is Brink’s theatrical reimagining of White’s acclaimed Down at the Dump - transformed into a raw, immediate and unexpected performance experience - while retaining all of the writer’s language, wit, scathing insight and wonderful humour.

The Aspirations of Daise Morrow is a ‘word for word’ piece, intimately presented in Brink’s immersive style with the performers working around the audience within an installation resembling a cemetery. White’s Australian vernacular and wit is formidably embodied by a stellar cast which teams Blackwell and McQuade - together on stage for the first time since 2009 - with two emerging Adelaide actors, James Smith and Lucy Lehmann.

Audiences at The Aspirations of Daise Morrow will enjoy an original score composed and performed live by Zephyr Quartet, one of Australia’s most innovative contemporary string ensembles, while sitting under the haze of an Australian sky created by Tony Award winning lighting designer Nigel Levings. Set and costume design is by Michael Hankin, whose recent theatre credits include Belvoir Street Theatre’s Angels in America and The Glass Menagerie.
