An exciting new initiative between Malthouse Theatre and Monash University, Welcome to Nowhere gives us five brand new plays written by some of Australia’s most fascinating playwrights: Angus Cerini, Zoey Dawson, Daniel Keene, Fleur Kilpatrick and Morgan Rose.
Rose’s New Bright Future is the highlight of the five. Hilarious, dark and bizarre, this piece also allows the performers to have a ridiculous amount of fun on stage and show off their comedic acting skills, while the set design by Leticia Brennan-Steers is deceptively simple and allows the focus to remain on the actors and the stories they are telling.
The really wonderful thing about this show is the opportunity to see new acting talent perform new and original Australian works. This is something we definitely need more of.
