The Meat Show – October
At Home residency program
Supported by the Regional Centre for Culture
In residence 24 Sept – 7 Oct
The Meat Show is the first self-devised work to be created at the Red Room Theatre.
A two-handed political cabaret with original music and song. It is darkly comic and deeply moving. An initial development of the work was presented at LaMama Explorations at the end of 2016, under the working title The Crying Machine.
The Red Room Theatre is an independent collaborative project between Kenneth MacLeod and Kate Stones, based at their home in Campbells Creek, in which a large, square room built onto the back of the house serves as a workshop and performance space, seating up to 35 people. Productions include: Servant of the Revolution by local Marxist Feminist academic Anitra Nelson (2016); Purgatorio by Ariel Dorfman (2015 Castlemaine State Festival); Emilie’s Voltaire, A Love Story by Arthur Giron (2011 Castlemaine Fringe Festival). Emilie’s Voltaire also toured to Kyneton Town Hall and The Engine Room at The Capital Theatre Bendigo.
This is the first time that the Red Room Theatre will perform at the Phee. For more information visit their Facebook page.
