Black Medea

MALTHOUSE THEATRE - season 2005: ""

Every now and then, and then just often enough, you see a play that justifies the money you spend on season subscriptions to theatre companies. Today was one of those occasions when I had the pleasure of watching the final in the Autumn season at the Malthouse Theatre. The play, Black Medea, is beautifully performed by a small cast of 4 Aboriginal actors - all of them except the boy - known nationally in Australia for the quality of their craft.

But in addition to the acting, the thing that I really appreciated was the fabulous lighting in an extraordinarily effective stage setting.

Well done to all.
