PLAYREADING: FALLING APPLES
Set in an epic landscape of intimate moments, 13 people stretch their lives through the lens of a contemporary Chekhovian tale: their question – How do we stand on our own 2 feet when we don’t know where the ground lies?
The sensibility of Lene Therese Teigen’s new play traverses cultures, both Norwegian and Australian alike. This work investigates how we see our personal futures and how we so easily relinquish self-determination and sew our destiny into the lives of others.
Verve Studios Artistic Director and Award winning Independent Theatre practitioner Peta Hanrahan, leads a tightly woven Ensemble of Independent theatre performers and Stage Verve graduating actors in a reading of Falling Apples, to be followed by a Full Season in September as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival
