  SUBTLENUANCE 2015 SEASON 
 

And Now to Bed
  
And Now to Bed is the third and final installment 
of our critically acclaimed Table Talk Trilogy.
 
The first two installments, 
The Political Hearts of Children and High Windows Low Doorways, 
featured some of Sydney’s most exciting emerging and established artists 
and received a remarkable response:
 
“Stark white walls. Seven scripts. Seven actors. Who needs 'big' theatre, when 'little' theatre can be so blindingly brilliant?” 
Australian Stage Online
 
“This is a rare find for theatre-hunters, the opening night audience laughing, crying and so privileged to find insight into not one but seven beautiful minds. I’m going back again.”  
5th Wall
 
The Political Hearts of Children was one of my favourite productions from big or little theatre in 2013. As High Windows Low Doorways used the same immensely successful collaborative approach, I was eager to see this. I was not disappointed: it was brilliant.”

The Table Talk Trilogy 
is a thrilling reinvention and rejuvenation 
of the multi-playwright form.

 Each installment of the trilogy explores a theme considered taboo,
a topic deemed ‘inappropriate’ for dinner party conversation: 
The Political Hearts of Children explored ‘politics’ 
and High Windows Low Doorways explored ‘religion’. 


And Now to Bed 
promises to be a fascinating conclusion to the trilogy.
It explores 'sex'.

Created from the personal experience of the actors,
And Now to Bed
is 
innovative in its form, 
transgressive in its subject matter,
and promises to be 
one of the most thrilling theatrical events of 2015.

The Poor Kitchen
by Daniela Giorgi

“The anarchists are crazy,
But better than the fascists”

Elle unexpectedly inherits an olive farm in Italy.
The neighbours are colourful,
the food is divine,
but as she tucks into het tagliatelle,
she finds herself at the table with the ghosts of a barbarous past.

Praise for previous work by Daniela Giorgi:

"Talc is a well crafted and well acted emotional hour of must-see theatre"
Aussie Theatre

Talc is a work of originality and independence…Giorgi has created two intriguingly complex characters in this astute portrayal of human life and desires”
The Blurb 

“A tightly-written, tautly-performed, visceral piece" 
Australian Stage Online on Talc

"Friday is more than just another political satire - it strikes at the very confused heart of a sleeping democracy"
Lisa Thatcher

"Friday, by Daniela Giorgi, is a cutting satire.. a witty and insightful production. Friday should be mandatory viewing " 
The Buzz from Sydney

"Friday’s structure is exuberantly quick and sharp... The story is told with crystal clarity.... a great night at the theatre." 
Suzy Goes See

Chocolate House
by Paul Gilchrist
performed by Sylvia Keays

A philosophical exploration of indulgence. 
A theatrical experiment in tone.
A damn good excuse to eat chocolate.

Part chocolate tasting part performance, 
Chocolate House is witty, moving and just a little bit naughty.

Praise for the team that created the enormously popular Blind Tasting:

"Keay's performance is such that it's as if she owned the words, as if she wrote them; I can't imagine a stronger affinity between writer and actor" 
Crikey

"One of those little treasures of a play that fills your glass with optimism, spills a bit with the laughs, and finds truth."  
Canberra Times

“a well crafted, tasty piece of small, intense theatre that ponders some deeply philosophical questions…. delivered engagingly by Sylvia Keays” 
The Adelaide Advertiser
