By Oscar Wilde. Black Swan Theatre Company. Director: Kate Cherry. Heath Ledger Theatre, State Theatre Centre of WA, Perth, WA. 9-28 March 2013.
Black Swan Theatre Company embraced this classic comedy with themed pre-show announcements, sumptuous settings and beautiful costumes.
The audience quickly warmed to the Widean wit, which was accentuated by playful blocking and physical humour.
I particularly enjoyed the performances of the younger lovers, Scott Sheridan as Algernon and Adriane Duff as Cecily. Complimenting each other beautifully, their characters were wonderfully balanced.
