Death & Everything Between - A photographer's
by Keith Mcllroy
I am taking promotional photographs at rehearsals
I try not to listen to what the actors are saying
- after all, cameras don't have ears! Occasionally
though a performance is so powerful that it becomes
impossible to ignore.
first sign that this was going to be one of those
performances was the reaction of the cast who were
listening to the monologue performances of their colleagues.
We all know that a show is usually going to be good
when the cast are still laughing at the script after
30 or more rehearsals but what sort of show is it
going to be when some of the cast are also still crying
after so many rehearsals?
I rested my camera on my lap and started to listen.
Then I too laughed and I too cried.
individual performers from an 8 year old girl to an
80 year old man took me on a wonderful journey from
Birth to Death. Needless to say, they did not cover
'Everything Between' but what they did cover was well
written and performed with great passion.
am not a regular theatre critic, and this was only
a rehearsal that I saw, but from what I did see this
Merely Players production is going to be the best
piece of affordable theatre in Sydney since Briony
Dunn's 'Wild Honey' that ran last year at the NIDA
Death & Everything Between runs 8pm Tuesday to
Saturday from 18th March to 3rd April at the TAP Gallery,
Darlinghurst. $20/$15 MCA Ticketing 9645 1611.
