Mon Sans Productions, in association with Actor's Anonymous, proudly presents the Sydney premiere of The Various Methods of Escape. 5 performances only. Tickets are now on sale.
The Various Methods of Escape is the harrowing debut play by Amber Spooner. It was inspired by Natascha Kampusch's thoughts on her captor as well as the victimisation she experienced in her post captive years and raises questions about how society comprehends and rationalizes atrocity.
The Various Methods of Escape was written as part of The Hive program run by The Street Theatre in Canberra, later developed through Script In Hand, an open mic script development program run by Actors Anonymous.
Script In Hand showrunner and director, Liviu Monsted (Deadhouse: Tales of Sydney Morgue, STREET, In Waiting), says he saw the audience's fascination with the premise and decided to produce the show with his company Mon Sans Productions, a company that focuses on developing new artists. Mon Sans Productions is currently celebrating its tenth anniversary.
Initially set to premiere in March 2020 and then in August 2021, The Various Methods of Escape has battled through two unpredictable years of major COVID-19 lockdowns. Lead actress Lucy Hadfield states, "It was devastating. I felt like a part of myself that I had become so proud of had been torn out of me".
Finally, after three months of tentatively waiting, Mon Sans Productions has booked a third attempt for May 2022. Liviu confirms, "I think keeping shows alive regardless of the delays is important; it speaks to the importance of the craft that shows don't get abandoned."
The Various Methods of Escape stars Lucy Hadfield (STREET), Chris Miller (Deadhouse: Tales of Sydney Morgue), Meagan Caratti (Home and Away), Rosie Meader and Christopher Strickland. With Lighting Design by Mehran Mortezei and Makeup by Maddison Grey. Tickets are now on sale for the strictly limited season of The Various Methods of Escape at Actors Pulse Theatre, 103 Regent St, Redfern NSW 2016.
