Company Eleven is proudly presenting their inaugural production, David Williamson's 'Third World Blues' for a strictly limited season this September.

Company Eleven is an exciting new independent theatre company founded by students of the 'Bachelor of Music Theatre' degree at the Victorian College of the Arts.

The company aims to create high quality affordable theatre and provide opportunities for passionate and talented Melbourne artists.

A taut and dramatic work, combining comedic energy and biting satire, 'Third World Blues' is set against the background of the Vietnam War.

The year is 1972 and Graham, a conscript, arrives home from the war keen to see his wife Keren. However, their reunion is complicated by the arrival of Keren's lover Neville and his pregnant wife.

This anticipated production will feature a cast predominately made up of graduates of the Victorian College of the Arts 'Bachelor of Music Theatre' degree.

Production director is Margot Fenley, Victorian College of the Arts music theatre course coordinator. 'We feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to work with Margot again after having had her as our acting teacher and course coordinator during our time at VCA. It's very special to come back to work together as professionals rather than as a teacher and students'.

Director: Margot Fenley

Assistant Director: Lauren McKenna

CAST:
