Unitec presents ... WIDOWS

Unitec presents ... WIDOWS

By Ariel Dorfman and Tony Kushner
Directed by John Davies
Featuring Unitec's 2014 Year 2 actors in their first full production at Unitec Theatre

Beside the river, an old woman waits.
The younger women bicker and are lost in the grief of their village.
These are evil days, men are murdered, and others simply disappear.
The military junta carve up the land like a roasted goat.
Then something appears in the river, and the soldiers start to lose control.
Widows, by Ariel Dorfman and Tony Kushner, is a powerful indictment of the military dictatorships that ruled in much of Latin America in the later half of the 20th century. The play deals with the lives of a group of widows and how, under the leadership of their matriarch, they evoke from the river a truth that cannot be denied.

Howard Davis: A Brief History of Handel's Messiah

Messiah has become an overworked Christmas tradition as hoary as chestnuts roasting on an open fire, gorging on mince pies and eggnog, and trying to avoid shopping mall Santas like so many spectral inhabitants of Dante's Seventh Circle of Hell. More>>
