La Boite Theatre announces 2014 season

Queensland’s La Boite Theatre has announced its 2014 season.

The program, announced last week with a ‘close encounters’ launch as part of its ten-year anniversary, features four main house plays, seven independent productions and a holiday show for families over summer. It will feature plays by a number of Australian playwrights like David Burton and Claire Christian (First), Lally Katz (Stories I Want To Tell You In Person) and Kathryn Marquet (Other Countries), plus new international productions and two interpretations of classic plays.

Artistic Director Dadid Berthold said: “This is a season driven by great writing. It’s wonderful to have so many spirited Australian writers joining us: David Burton, Claire Christian, Niz Jabour, Richard Jordan, Lally Katz, Kathryn Marquet, Louis Nowra and Sven Swenson, especially when they are joined by Henrik Ibsen, Roald Dahl and two of the most refreshing contemporary playwrights from either side of the Atlantic - Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Herzog and Olivier Award-winning Mike Bartlett.

“They are joined by artists as diverse as Missy Higgins, Jessica Marais, Leticia Cáceres, Steven Mitchell Wright, Jennifer Flowers, Trevor Stuart, Benjamin Schostakowski and Hugh Parker, in collaboration with inspiring partner organisations such as Melbourne Theatre Company, Brisbane Festival and shake & stir theatre co.”

The 2014 indie season includes generational exploration 400 Miles by Amy Herzog, Sven Swenson’s stage thriller Angel Gear and David Burton and Claire Christian’s Hedonism’s Second Album.

The Mainhouse season was curated by David Berthold and includes Louis Nowra’s stage adaptation of Mozart’s comic opera Così fan tutte, Mike Bartlett’s contemporary love triangle Cock and a world premiere live show of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts, where La Boite has teamed with youth-focused theatre company shake & stir.
