The theatre is a place where one not only gets a dose of entertainment but also serves as a centre of discussion, thought and reflection through the wittiness, the tragic and also the outright satirical shows on display.
By attending the theatre, we would not only be opening our horizons to themes which help us ponder on any given situation or concept but also injects more spirit and drive for more production teams to come up with further ideas and ultimately shows!
With that in mind, we thought of sharing with you 5 upcoming productions that are taking place locally and which vary in styles, audiences and also pricing.
Lights set, actors in position, let’s start!
La Cage Aux Folles
21 - 30 October 2022 | Teatru Manoel, Valletta
Expect this production to be funny and also emotional… After 20 years of partnered bliss, gay couple Georges and Albin run a drag nightclub in Saint-Tropez, where Albin is the star performer known as Zaza.
When Georges' son announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, ultra-conservative politician, M Dindon, Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as 'normal' to meet the family of the bride-to-be - but Albin has other plans, with hilarious results!
Ta’ Fuqha Senduqha
14 - 23 October 2022 | Spazju Kreattiv, Valletta
All Ruth wanted was for her son to have a better life than her. Simple. But it’s not easy.
Ruth narrates what she went through and how she sometimes feels that she can get out of this narrow path of poverty she got into, and also that sometimes she can’t.
21 - 31 October 2022 | L-Armerija, Vittoriosa
L-Għarusa is an adaptation of Ġuże’ Diacono’s drama which follows the mental and emotional imbalances of Suor Wistina. She decided to become a sister after having witnessed her lover who had drowned to his death.
The image of Jesus Christ started crossing paths with that of her lover, so much so that Wistina wasn’t drawing a distinction between the two. But will she succumb to this?
The Three Palaces Early Opera & Music Festival 2022
1 - 12 November 2022 | Various locations
This festival runs across the first part of November and will seek to bring out the fact that in Malta we are surrounded by magnificent buildings that we pass by every day and barely notice their beauty.
It gives life to the philosophy that everyone should have access to heritage sites, to the transcendent beauty of art, as well as the right to participate in the expression of music.
11 - 12 November 2022 | Valletta Campus Theatre (VCT)
This production is mainly aimed at a younger audience and will delve into the town of Techville where technology takes centre stage. Everything is controlled by Technology.
But at what cost? What lies outside of Techville? What is The Unknown?
What happens when one girl's curiosity jeopardises the very foundations of this futuristic utopia?
Will you be visiting any of the above performances?
