Rebels @ Malthouse Theatre 2017

2017 is the year of the rebel at the Malthouse Theatre this year with some notable productions.

In the last few days John Hurt, who played the lead in the 80s movie Elephant Man died and this years production The Real & Imagined History of the Elephant Man explores this story as it travels through ‘hospitals, circus’ and every day life.

King Noble’s You’re not Alone explores loneliness through performance and ‘guerrilla’ video.

And what could create more of a time bomb in China that spoilt and  overburdened children resulting from the single child policy. Lachlan Phillpot’s Little Emperors explores this situation with comedy and pathos of this situation.
