Some say, Anthony Neilson, a Scottish born playwright, has created a new genre of theatre, which is explorative of all types and forms of emotions.
Neilson's fantastical and enchanting play is entitled 'Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness'; the title gives a hint of vaudeville, a sniff of emotion and a taste of curiosity.
Polyamorous Productions, the creation of two amazing professionals who have taken on experimental theatre and packaged it stupendously for us, present their version of 'Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness' at www.pact.net.au/" id="ccblink" target="_blank">PACT from May 4 to 7 2016.
The audience were amazed and astounded by the rich and surrealistic atmospheric absurdity of what was before them. So much so that it bought the audience in with it, not just along with its tale.
The pearls of wisdom, the dance of love, the plight of love lost and the ever-enduring pain of heartache were expounded upon beautifully.
In Gant's world, nothing is quite as it seems or is it? The absurdity of our hearts and mind's dearest wishes and greatest loves and losses are mirrored in Gant's light amusing tales, making such tales bearable. This production was directed by Natasha Pesce and produced by Joel Harrison and Alex Kennedy.
The cast included Will Hickey as the adorable and melancholy Edward Gant, Nicole Wineberg as Madame Poulet, Ralph Andrews as Jack Dearlove and Jonathan Lagudi was Nicholas Ludd.
Polyamorous Productions has created an experience that the audience can easily connect with. It was a stupendous pleasure to attend such a mesmerising performance. It is thoroughly enjoyable, even the sad bits.
