Southbank Theatre, The Sumner
Celebrate 50 years of David Williamson's plays on our stages with an absolute classic of Australian theatre.
Welcome to the glittering jewel in Australia's cultural crown - that sinkhole of ambition and superficiality we call Sydney. Colin is Australia's most successful screenwriter, but since moving from Melbourne with his wife Kate he's been faced with a choice between art and commerce that will define his career forever. Meanwhile, Kate's star is on the ascent and her latest publication has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Fame and fortune are there for the taking, but big surprises are in store for them both.
Part love-letter, part hate-mail to the harbour city, this is the finest comedy by Australian theatre's most beloved craftsman and commentator, David Williamson. A panoramic view of the city that tends to prize beauty over brains, Emerald City is a fast-moving, wisecracking commentary on contemporary values that skewers the materialism of the 1980s with razor-sharp precision.
What better way to celebrate 50 years of David Williamson's plays on our stages than with an absolute classic of Australian theatre directed by Queensland Theatre Artistic Director Sam Strong (Jasper Jones), starring Marg Downey (Rupert), Nadine Garner (Photograph 51), Jason Klarwein (A Streetcar Named Desire), Rhys Muldoon (House Husbands) and Ray Chong Nee (Noises Off).
