Have you ever wished you could start over a whole day?

When everyone is at fault – who is to blame? And when people are only capable of looking at life in black and white, how is one to find that gray elusive area?

Greg and Alex are brothers and, along with their respective wives Helen and Shirley, are spending the last few days of a sticky humid summer in a holiday house somewhere in Malta or Gozo. The oppressive heat is quick to reignite the age-old rancour between the siblings and it is obvious that these bitter grudges have not been forgotten, let alone forgiven. Then Greg surprises his brother in a clinch with his young new wife.... and that is the proverbial last straw.

Playing on the idea that perspectives make the world go round the story follows four normal people struggling with their insecurities, fears and impulses like every Tom, Dick and Harry. It is also a play about being given a second chance at life and how there are usually two paths to choose from when this happens: move on or stay put. But as we all come with baggage, is such a choice that easy? And what happens when too many people are interpreting the same thing and nothing remains objective? Can a choice be that black, or white, or grey? 

Du Theatre is back on the boards after a creative break with this new original piece and first prize winner of the Francis Ebejer Competition 2011. Written by the group’s Simone Spiteri this new piece comes after the sell-out success of Appuntamenti, also a Francis Ebejer winning play in 2009, and boasts a cast of some of Malta’s finest actors including Peter Galea, Stefan Farrugia, Coryse Borg and Spiteri herself under the direction of Chris Gatt. 



The play, which is supported by the Malta Arts Council will be performed at St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity on the 23rd, 24th, 25th, 30th, 31st March and 1st April 2012 at 8pm. 

Tickets can be be bought from the centre and more information about the group can be found on the website www.dutheatre.com or facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/D%C3%B9-Theatre/319591031386894

This production is partly funded by The Arts Council.
