By Tim Winton, adapted by Peta Murray, Directed by Phillip Mitchell. Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, Fremantle, WA. July 4-18, 2015
Blueback, a lovely adaptation of the novel by Tim Winton, is being revived at Spare Parts Puppet Theatre in Fremantle. The theatrical retelling by Peta Murray, is a visually focused, gentle story, perfect for a school holiday reprieve.
Possibly stronger than its previous incarnation, Blueback is presented by actors Bec Bradley and St John Cowcher, who perform almost wordlessly to a beautifully constructed narrative, supplemented by music by Don Hopkins.
