GINA SCHIEN’S ‘MORGAN STERN’ : COMING TO BELVOIR STREET AND THEN GOING TO EDINBURGH

Sydney theatre lovers will get a brief window of opportunity to see Australian playwright Gina Shien’s poignant play MORGAN STERN based on her brother’s battle with schizophrenia.

In Schien’s quirky play, a character named only as The Gent, part ghost, part protector, has been assigned from the other side of the planet to help Morgan, a young Sydneysider afflicted with schizophrenia.

The play shifts  between centuries and across hemispheres but remains primarily set in a still difficult to know corner of the universe – the human brain.

The production, mounted by Company of Rogues, will play Belvoir Street downstairs for two performances only in early July.  Then in August the Company are very excited to announce that it will have its international debut at the Edinburgh Festival which turns 70 this year.

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY: 

MORGAN STERN will play downstairs at Belvoir Street on July 1 at 7.30 pm and July 2 at 5.30 pm.
