Theatre Minifest: Blackout

2008-02-29 00:00

The curtain is coming down on our world.

Is it the final curtain?

Will there be an encore?

Join Doughnut and Jock in a madcap adventure to help save our planet from a lunatic with the power to switch off the sun ...forever.

South Africa's Ellis Pearson takes a unique, seriously thought provoking, yet highly entertaining look at the global warming crisis.

Ellis has created a theatre epic to rival “Lord of the Rings” – parts I, II AND III. It is a gigantic battle between good and evil. The arch villain has done what no one else has dared to do. He has stolen the sun and now holds the world to ransom. Can the unlikely heroes rise to the occasion and help to bring back the light?

Blackout is a comic celebration of everything that is wonderful about theatre – energy, danger, laughter and astonishment; clever use of objects and sound making devices.

Blackout shows at the Hexagon Theatre Minifest at 10.30am and 4.30 pm on March 15.
