Sydney Arts Guide Reviewer Lynn Belvedere
Tonight I witnessed an excellent preview performance of SEX, DEATH & CHOCOLATE, a collage of short plays directed by the wonderful Roz Riley who has an astonishing 50 plays already under her belt.
SEX, DEATH & CHOCOLATE (2013) comprises of 7 short plays by 7 writers, cleverly threaded together to form a unified full-length feature work… Each short play stands alone comfortably, yet melds seamlessly within this carefully chosen group of short plays that make a poetic, dreamlike sum. Director Roz Riley selected works from a veritable ABCDE of writers.
Alex Broun (A) Brenda Gottsche (B) Con Nats (C) Deb Mulhall (D) Edgar Allan Poe (E) And also Julia Lewis (J) and Suzanne Hauser (S)…
I was impressed with actress Amy Fisher's grace and presence on stage…in fact, each actor and actress in this work brought something good to the table.
At over 2 hours, this is a rich, diverse presentation with ever changing, unfolding moods and protagonists.
10 well cast actors. Attractive sets. Good lighting effects. Good sound effects… …and even some moments of sweet-voiced singing….lovely! All presented in one Sydney’s most comfortable and intimate theatres (STAR OF THE SEA at Manly)…
This is an experiment gone right… it’s got big dollops of sexy, lashings of deathly and a little pinch of bittersweet chocolate.
Check it out soon.
