pool (no water)

Date: 5 Sep 2018

Mark Ravenhill’s brief, blackly funny satire sees four artists proudly working on the fringes  invited to stay in the luxury home of a longtime colleague, now a contemporary art superstar.

Jealousy and anger is kept at bay with fine wine, party drugs and the prospect of harking back to the good old days with skinny-dipping session in the swanky swimming pool.

But when their host suffers a terrible accident, bitterness, schadenfreude and opportunism sees the foursome turn the broken body of their host into an artwork. Revenge and celebrity – the things they really crave – all in one hit.

Maeliosa Stafford directs this Sydney Fringe Festival production. Camille Chorley, Laura Wilson, Eleni Cassimatis, Sean Lyall, Heath Anderson and Dominic Gruenewald feature.
