Fringe theatre fights for Human Rights

When put to the test, the human will to survive reveals its strength.

I LOVE YOU: A Story of Forbidden Love, is a timely and engaging love story which explores the rights of women, democracy and the power of love. Written and produced by aspiring Sydney playwright Sage Godrei, I LOVE YOU: A Story of Forbidden Love is part of this year's Sydney Fringe Festival for a strictly limited season - 5 performances only!

I LOVE YOU: A Story of Forbidden Love is a fictional story set in Armenia 1919, at the end of the first World War. Against this tumultuous backdrop, Isleen, a Muslim woman, betrays her father in order to love Asad, a Christian Armenian. The play explores psychology, the imitation of behaviour through its depiction of the fight for human rights and details some of the similarities between Christianity and Islam. However, despite its historical, social and policial references, I LOVE YOU: A Story of Forbidden Love does not intend to be didactic.

Rather this rebellious form of theatre aims to invoke a sense of 20th-century realism and 21st-century altruism as the spectator becomes the observer and the human being the subject of inquiry. Sage Godrei says "I believe that love will always find a way and am really thrilled to be producing a human rights play in the strain of the Epic Theatre method realised by the great Bertolt Brecht. I want the audience to see the possibilities of the world on the faces of the characters."

Proudly presented by On the Cusp Production, I LOVE YOU: A Story of Forbidden Love feaures elaborate costumes, stylised movement through Eastern choreography, abstractions projections and restrained violence.


Come and share this story's joy of revelation and ascendance through a profound fight for justice against a totalitarian rule.
