2018 NIDA Student Productions

Date: 14 May 2018

This year’s Student Production season features two American plays, a science fiction screenplay adapted for the stage, an iconic Australian work and one of the most famous plays of the 20th century.

International director and puppeteer Finn Caldwell directs the stage adaptation of Alex Garland’s 2014 multi-award-winning science fiction thriller film Ex Machina. The play fuses cutting-edge technology with techniques adapted from traditional Japanese Bunraku puppet theatre, and explores science fiction’s place within contemporary theatre.

NIDA Director/CEO Kate Cherry directs Venus in Fur, US playwright David Ives’ adaptation of the 1870s novella Venus in Furs by Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch depicting the enigmatic and seductive relationship between a theatre director and a street-smart actress.

Susanna Dowling will directs Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.

Elsie Egerton-Till helms David Williamson’s violently funny Australian classic, The Removalists.

Anthea Williams production of The Colby Sisters of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a play set in New York about the lives of five sisters from a privileged background with a troubled family history, rounds off the season.
