Mulvany, Williamson, and Bubnic's work in QTC's 2018 Season
Well done to Kate Mulvany, David Williamson, and Melissa Bubnic for getting their work programmed in Queensland Theatre Company's 2018 Season.
Sam Strong's MTC production of Japser Jones is being taken to QTC's QPAC Playhouse from 28 July - 18 August 2018. Based on the novel by Craig Silvey, and adapted to the stage by Kate Mulvany, Jasper Jones is set in the sizzling summer of 1965, where a bookish 14 year-old boy flees from the boredom and bullying of small-town life and buries himself in stories of epic adventure. He never thought he’d find himself living one.
David Williamson's new original work, Nearer The Gods, is a gripping and blackly funny drama about ideas that would change the world. Isaac Newton’s laws of motion are the foundation of countless human advancements. This is the story of how one of the greatest moments of scientific illumination almost didn’t happen. On from 6 October to 3 November, 2018, in QTC's Bille Brown Theatre.
Melissa Bubnic's re-imagining of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler has Danielle Cormack playing Ibsen's fiercest leading lady railing against her life. She didn’t marry bogan drug slinger George Tesman so she could play housewife in a monstrous Gold Coast mansion with white leather couches, blingy chandeliers and endless rounds of Aperol Spritz. Playing from 10 November to 8 December, 2018, in QTC's Bille Brown Theatre.
