The lights of beautiful Darling Harbour, Sydney boats, hundreds of people, the Lendlease Darling Quarter Theatre – all is set for the emotional roller coaster of the premiere of Elizabeth Fensham’s ‘Goodbye Jamie Boyd’
- the adaptation by MonkeyBaa Theatre by the brilliant team of Eva de Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry.
- with Buzz Dance Theatre WA premiere dance company for young people
The young actor Gemma Yates-Round gave a gripping performance as Anna Boyd, the girl whose descent into schizophrenia, weed, self harm as she moved towards acceptance and self expression left the the audience questioning, thinking, feeling. As the audience rose to its feet applauding, there was a greater understanding of mental illness.
Stars included the 1st quality production – high quality technical moments
brilliant direction by Sandra Eldridge and Cadi McCarthy
lighting design by Luiz Pampolha….
and of course my favourite stage manager Samuel Johnson.
Samuel was the dedicated stage manager for I AM JACK.
See ‘Goodbye Jamie Boyd’ for its short season 1-7 August – it’ll change you.
