By Lachlan Philpott. Griffin Theatre / ATYP/ HotHouse Theatre. SBW Stables Theatre, Darlinghurst (NSW). April 28 – June 4, 2011.
I just love it when I’m blown away by a piece of new Australian theatre, as I was by Silent Disco.
Was it identification (as an ex-teacher), with a teacher and her students in a testing school?
Perhaps, though I’m betting Silent Disco will not only resonate with teachers, but will really engage younger audiences.
My thoughts were drawn back to an earlier school-themed Griffin hit, Us Or Them, which so many teachers and their students shared in the same venue and beyond in 1984.
