Melbourne High School's 3/4 Theatre Studies presents 'Realism' by Paul Galloway.
"In the summer of 1939 in a small Moscow theatre a company of actors begins rehearsals of a new play to commemorate Stalin’s sixtieth birthday. It’s a tough gig, because for Soviet artists working towards the Radiant Future the old showbiz maxim ‘the show must go on’ is an order you can’t refuse.
Another opening, another show trial! Realism is a comedy of nerves, a backstage farce set in a pressure cooker. It’s about the spirit that makes art live and the forces that want to crush it."
7PM Wednesday 20th - Friday the 22nd of May in A2 Melbourne High School
