By Lally Katz (World Premiere). Arena Theatre Company and Arts Centre Melbourne. Fairfax Studio, Arts Centre Melbourne. Director: Christian Leavesley. Set: Jonathon Oxlade. Sound: Jethro Woodward. 2nd June, 2012 (two public shows).
If your space-crazy child is going to see Starchaser, you’d better be quick. There are only two public shows this weekend in the intimate setting of the Fairfax Studio, after eight shows for school groups this week.
At the World Premiere performance this morning, writer Lally Katz told the school children gathered that she had wanted ‘to write something about longing’.
‘I just really like outer space,’ she shrugged, ‘and it’s my dream to go to space in my bed.’
