WINNER: WA's Best Production 2003 and Best Director 2003 (Alan Becher)
Sunshine Coast audiences will now get the chance to see the powerfully evocative and internationally acclaimed production of Skin Tight by New Zealand playwright Gary Henderson at the Nambour Civic Centre on Wednesday 26th October at 8pm.
Skin Tight (based on Denis Glover's poem The Magpies) tells the intimate story of a rural marriage coming to its end. Tom and Elizabeth weave a violent and passionate dance of their union through an exhilarating feast of fights, lovemaking and tenderness. The characters strip themselves, literally and figuratively, to explore the heart of an enduring love. Skin Tight is about the immortality of love and the reflection of a life-long journey two people have made together, on the day they must part.
Described as "wrenchingly beautiful and intensely physical" Skin Tight has equal moments of fire and exquisite grace and peace. The combination of PTC's Artistic Director Alan Becher's direction, the non-stop, no-holds-barred performances of Stuart Halusz and Karen Roberts, and this award winning script results in a fiercely physical yet powerfully sensual piece of theatre. The performances are choreographed with electrifying sensuality and powerful athleticism that will leave audiences breathless.
Skin Tight has been performed several times around New Zealand since 1994, won a Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1998, followed by a season in London, and had a successful season in South Africa in 1999, and in Sydney in 2000 and 2001. PTC's production scooped the pool at the WA Equity Awards in 2003 including Best Director + Best Production.
"…a little gem of a play, sensitive, sensual and moving, wonderfully played by two talented actors"
