Wajdi Mouawad’s play about memory, the search for oneself
Are you looking for an experience that is different from what you normally do? Are you looking for a cultural experience that has not hit the Australian stage yet? Are you interested in productions that are normally written in another language than English?

Let me share this amazing theatrical performance that is going to come to Newtown, Sydney this March 2020 with you! Tideline is hilarious and poignant at the same time, it explores the impact of death, war and of course love on young people. Did I mention one of King Arthur's knight makes a guest appearance during the play?

"Not to be missed..." - L'Orient-Le Jour, Lebanon


An interesting production of Wajdi Mouawad's play about memory, the search for oneself and displacement performed by Théâtre Excentrique.

"After the unexpected death of a father he hardly knew, Wilfrid decides to bury the body in his father's homeland. He is helped in his quest by a movie director and one of King Arthur's knights, both farcical versions of Wilfrid's own psyche.

Along the way, he acquires friends all of whom dream of a better life and when confronted by a war-torn country, Wilfrid finds an additional corpse is one too many. Only if he makes it to the Tideline, will he be able to bury his father."

Following the critically acclaimed Scorched, the epic Tideline is the second play of award-winning Lebanese-Canadian playwright Wajdi Mouawad to hit the Australian stage.

So who is Wajdi Mouawad? And who or what is Théâtre Excentrique?

Wajdi Mouawad, (born 1968) is a Lebanese-Canadian writer, actor, and director. He is known in Canadian and French theatre for his politically engaged, moralistic theatre. It often revolves around family trauma, war, the betrayal of youth, and for recurring stylistic tropes, such as having his actors shout all their lines. Since April 2016, Mouawad is the director of the Théâtre national de la Colline in Paris.

His play Scorched has been produced all over the world and won several awards. It received much praise from critics, winning the "Nestroy Award" in 2007. In 2011 Incendies, the film version of the play directed by Denis Villeneuve was Canada's official selection for the Academy Awards.

Now Théâtre Excentrique is proud to present Wajdi Wouawad's play Tideline!

Théâtre Excentrique was created in a collaborative spirit to entertain and challenge audiences with unique and passionate international pieces of theatre. The company is eager to give voices to characters and stories that are rarely heard in Australia. Most of the plays produced are originally written in a language other than English and some have never been staged in Australia.
