Heartstring Theatre proudly present the Australian premiere season of

Marie Antoinette


By David Adjmi

Directed by Rachel Baring

I was born to be a queen. It wasn’t my choosing, I was born into it.

Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France, is only concerned with her macarons and lapdogs. But when the people who have raised her up are suddenly the first to bring her down, Marie is forced to deal with what lies beyond the façade. Historical events from almost 300 years ago are made shockingly relevant as the 'It Girl' of Versailles finds herself the centre of a revolution.

From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of 'Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!' in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

Heartstring Theatre is a Melbourne-based theatre company formed in 2016, launching with a Green Room Award nominated all female season of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. They endeavour to create dynamic, thought-provoking theatre, interpreting both classical and new work. The company also strive to address the shortage of great and interesting roles for women by producing plays where at least half of the roles are female.

Serving up Melbourne audiences David Adjmi’s much-lauded theatrical sweetmeat, Heartstring Theatre’s latest offering is not to be missed.

'From Valley Girl comedy to mad-scene finale… David Adjmi’s [Marie Antoinette is a] marvelous, disturbing, revisionist take.'New York Magazine

'Macarons cede to just deserts, gowns to rags, quips to insane ramblings, gilded dream to caustic nightmare. And still the degradation continues.' Village Voice

 The Talk by Mish Grigor  
Wednesday, 4 July 2018
to Saturday, 14 July 2018

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Event image
Preview, 4 July 8pm
All shows 8pm except Sunday at 6pm
No shows Monday or Tuesday
Relaxed performance Saturday, 14 July at 2pm
Auslan Interpreted performance Thursday, 12 July at 8pm

My brother came out after an episode of The L Word.
As the credits closed on Carmen going down on a leggy blonde in a nightclub, he said, 'I’m like that. I do that.'
My mother and I looked at each other, confused.
'Cunnilingis?' I offered, and laughed.
'No!' He said, standing up and rolling up his blanket. 'Gay. I do gay. I’m gay. I do gay sex.'

The Talk is a terribly undomesticated evening. It’s one account of what happens when you start talking about sex with your family: what ‘the talk’ is, and what it shouldn’t be.

In Mish Grigor’s latest participatory theatre work, the taboos of sex, relationships and family dynamics are laid bare: it’s explicit and unapologetic, yet also tender and personal in its investigation into uncharted territory. Based on real conversations with Grigor’s own family, The Talk is an awkwardly intimate and hilarious conversation with the artist about sex, sexuality and love. Bring your mum.

'It is funny, toe-curlingly frank, and immensely insightful' Lyn Gardner, The Guardian (UK)

Writer and Performer: Mish Grigor
Collaborating Artists: Anne Thompson and Jess Olivieri
