By Raimondo Cortese. Butterfly Theatre. Directed by Geoff Britain. The Wheatsheaf Hotel, Thebarton (SA). November 10-19, 2015
The Butterfly Theatre’s latest project, Beer Theatre, consists of three two-hander plays, of around half an hour each, presented in the intimate setting of The Wheatsheaf Hotel. Though each of the plays are focused on very different characters, they have themes and plot points in common. Each one involves a younger character causing disruption in the life of an older one, with strained attempts at affability giving way to darker conflict as the repressed insecurities of both parties rise to the surface.
