Casting has been announced for Andrew Thompson’s debut play, In Event Of Moone Disaster, winner of the 2016 Theatre503 Playwriting Award and the first show to be directed by Lisa Spirling since she took over as Artistic Director.
Philip Correia’s Hyem is a haven for those who don’t belong, pre-judged by their inability to fit in. Mick (Patrick Driver) is one such individual, ostracised by his community because of the abnormal household he keeps. His house is a safe space for the children whose parents forgot, the ones who play up at school and don’t seem to be able to conform to societal norms – neither do Mick or partner Sylv (Charlie Hardwick). Given the events of the last few years, Correia plays with the prejudice of paedophilia and throws a light on the expectation of adults to befriend only adults, kids only kids. But Hyem never quite sinks its teeth deep enough into the issues, veering instead into a pleasant sitcom.
Charlie Hardwick and Patrick Driver have been announced as the leads in Philip Correia’s exciting, edgy new production Hyem (yem, hjem, home) .
