PLAYING FACE Comes to Newcastle and Sydney
After a successful interstate tour of 'I Hope it's Not Raining in London' in June/July, we are excited to present Bearfoot's most ambitious original work yet! Incorporating film elements and a fully original score, Playing Face blends genres including farce, murder-mystery, camp, absurdism and horror, to deliver an experience like non-other. The result is an uncut exploration of the performance of identity within the roles society has laid out before us, and how strict adherence to these roles can often lead to the erosion of our truest self.
Newcastle based, emerging artist managed NFP Theatre Company 'Bearfoot Theatre' have a passion for producing original works of theatre which challenge boundaries, tackle social justice issues and give a voice to young artists.
