Featuring some of Sydney’s most exciting and established and emerging writers, Subtlenuance and thirty-five creatives will take over Flight Path Theatre in Marrickville for monumental project, Morning Star.
A multi-playwright project that explores pernicious ideas, Morning Star is about the tales told in Hell, and the ways of looking at the world that on first appearance seem innocuous, but on closer inspection, really just add to human misery.
Morning Star is not a short play festival. Each week’s program (each “Horn”) is a single cohesive work of art. The blending of different tales by multiple playwrights into a single whole is an artistic practice Subtlenuance has been exploring – to much critical acclaim – since 2013.
Co-founders of Subtlenuance, Paul Gilchrist (Kings Cross Theatre’s Shut Up and Drive, Old 505’s All the Difference) and Daniela Giorgi (New Theatre’s Women, Power and Culture, KXT’s Shut Up and Drive), will each direct one Horn.
Each with their own tale to tell, the esteemed team of ten writers delve into the darkness to find that although the devil may have two horns, he’s got more than a single tale.
First Horn (23 to 27 June)
Second Horn (30 June to 4 July)
All rehearsals and performances are following the latest Covid safety regulations in relation to performers, audiences, production team and venue staff. Keeping safe whilst enjoying some much needed live theatre is our utmost concern.
