DOUBLE-BILL : YIELDING & BIG HORN @ FLIGHT PATH
Aging is universal. The journey is unique. One show. Two stories.
Crying Chair Theatre will present a double-bill of two stellar Australian works, YIELDING and BIG HORN at Marrickville’s Flight Path Theatre from 26th May to 6th June.
Taking an empathetic look at love, loss, sexual politics and ageism, BIG HORN is a poignant story of one man’s determination to hold onto his home and his past. Ray Bold has lost his wife and son. But he never lost his fighting spirit, and he’s bloody determined not to move out of his home. Daughter-in-law Cate has to convince this wily old codger to move, before the government resumes his property.
Written by Paul Rogers (New Theatre’s Page 7 Bottom Left), BIG HORN is directed by Tricia Youlden, featuring Richard Cotter taking on a performing role, with Emma Dalton, Mel Day (The Hope Song,Marbles) and Eloise Martin-Jones (New Theatre’s Neighbourhood Watch and Consensual).
Co-director of Flight Path Theatre, Kate Bookallil, said: “We are really looking forward to providing a platform for the discussion of ageing and all the complexities that approaching old age throws at us. This is Crying Chair Theatre’s third production at Flight Path Theatre and we are proud of their commitment to staging Australian plays that give a voice to those who are not usually in the spotlight.”For tickets and more information, visit https://www.
