        Reviewers, The

Reviewers, The

One of history's worst scripts. Shows within shows within shows. Concealment, surprises and emergency dramaturgical meetings held in the dead of night. Fingers crossed, there's gonna be a revolution. The Reviewers is a hilarious, hyper-sequined explorative comedy that boldly questions the rules of performative decorum. Inspired by an on-stage confrontation she experienced while performing in Melbourne, the culmination of Director Sherilee Kahui's Master's degree turns theatrical device and expectation upside down, in a new devised work that dials subversion up to eleven. In The Reviewers, Kahui will push through convention and dive into carefully curated spectacle, setting herself a risky challenge: successfully orchestrating what she describes as a 'coup de theatre'. The Reviewers subverts established theatrical protocols and focuses intently on the audience's experience within the world of performance. Intricate levels of conceit, deceit, concealment and trust provide a solid foundation for collaboration between Kahui's company, Hank of Thread, and a brave and clever cast, creating a production atmosphere that levels the playing field of who's running the show. For in the world of The Reviewers, no-one knows exactly what's going to happen next.

An adaptation of 'The Knight of the Burning Pestle' . Written by: Francis Beaumont, Sherilee Kahui & the Cast. Concept: Dan Fraser and Sherilee Kahui.
