16 August 1977 – the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, dies and a young Indian couple touches down in Australia. In Ansuya Nathan’s hilariously moving one woman show Long Live the King, these two seemingly unrelated events are brought together in a funny, poignant and powerful tale of motherhood, music and migration that has wowed audiences around the world. Directed by Guy Masterson, written by and stars Adelaide-born Ansuya Nathan and presented in association with Asia Theatricals. 6-11 November at Parramatta Town Hall as part of Parramasala . Tickets $25/$20. Book for this and the contemporary stage comedy, The Trouble With Asian Men and tickets are only $35 for both!

 
Stories Then & Now

 

"Stories Then & Now is not only nourishing theatrically, but socially.  It's important work. Vital, in every sense." 

Curtain Call

Directed by master storyteller and celebrated photographer William Yang and writer and producer Annette Shun Wah, Stories Then & Now is an inspiring theatre work bringing together six Asian Australians to tell personal stories from their past to unravel the threads that lead to their present day lives.

Taking the audience from historical conflicts in China, Indonesia, Korea, Vietnam and Sri Lanka to the fraught family sqabbles of suburban Australia today, these candid narratives are drawn from the rich life experiences of academic and author Ien Ang, performer and writer Jenevieve Chang, video journalist, Michael C.S. Park, writer and radio producer Sheila Pham, social worker and food writer Paul van Reyk and civil marriage celebrant Willa Zheng.

Music by Nicholas Ng.

Stories Then & Now premiered in a sell out season at Carriageworks in May 2013.  It performed at Casula Powerhouse, and sold out at the OzAsia Festival, Adelaide Festival Centre.  We're looking for further opportunities to tour in 2014.  Watch this space!

Shingo Usami joins the cast of director Sam Strong's revival of the classic Australian play, The Floating World by John Romeril. Les and Irene are celebrating their wedding anniversary. Gifted with the holiday of a lifetime, they set sail on the Women’s Weekly Cherry Blossom Cruise bound for the cultural mysteries of Japan. But amongst the sun hats, theme nights and piña coladas Les, a former WWII prisoner of war, soon finds himself confronted by old diggers, enemies and tormented memories. As the cruise ship floats closer towards its destination, Les’ grip on reality floats ever further away. The reviews have been fantastic, and deservedly so. Don't miss it.  Griffin Theatre Company until 16 Nov.
