Giveaway: Win a Double Pass to see Autobahn

 

It’s a giveaway! Hooray!

 

Thanks to the cool cats at Underground Productions, we are giving you the chance to see the opening night TONIGHT at the Schonell Theatre, St Lucia. Just comment below to let us know why you’re looking forward to a night out at the theatre TONIGHT!

Make sure you’re following Underground Productions and XS Entertainment on Facebook and Twitter.

 

Underground Productions presents Autobahn
By Neil LaBute

 

Director: Meg Ham
Assistant Director: Danielle Carney

 

Autobahn is a series of short vignettes that all take place in the front seats of a car.  Through such a simple and free premise, playwright Neil LuBute explores seven scenarios of regular people in extraordinary circumstances.  From breakups to kidnappings to an escape from rehab, the situation is transformed again and again but the setting remains the same – showing us just how significant a short car ride can be, and taking us on a heartbreaking and exhilarating ride.

 

Director Meg Ham seized the opportunity to direct this QUEENSLAND PREMIERE after having been assistant director on Underground Productions’ previous work Bat Boy: The Musical, one of Underground’s biggest and most successful productions ever.  The simultaneously unique yet everyday setting of the piece coupled with LaBute’s bold, idiosyncratic dialogue attracted Meg from the first page.  I was drawn in by that concept of being confined and what conspires when two humans are trapped together; how we seize the opportunity to confront the other because they have nowhere to run.”

 

The cast includes a host of Underground veterans and some talented newcomers fresh off other theatrical projects – including winners of the Short+Sweet Queensland finals, and Meg is thrilled to have secured such a stellar group of young actors.  “The cast is incredible and are some of the hardest working performers I’ve ever had the pleasure or working with. They are thoughtful and honest to their characters and portray each story with a selflessness that you just don’t see very often.”

 

“I hope that you can love this show as much as we do. There is a chapter for everyone so come and share in these stories with us.”

    I’m looking forward to seeing a show that I’ve never heard of before, and being surprised by where it leads.
