A Slightly Isolated Dog Production
12 – 16 May 2021
Comedy. Thrills. Chaos. Delight.
Don Juan will come to life before your very eyes. The cast display a riotous and mischievous energy armed with intentionally bad French accents.
They are a charming and talented bunch. In a show with many pulsing moments the performances always feel ready and alive, as if waiting for an opportunity to steal the spotlight from one another (but failing because they’re all so evenly matched).
The actors take turns to play Don Juan, personified by wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap. Audience members are given a gentle confidence so no one ever really feels in danger, but also leaving enough room for people to be surprised.
The narrative moves spectacularly well. It embraces the audience-performer relationship and makes it transparent, creating a piece of theatre that could only ever be theatre and nothing else. But the best moments of the show simply do what the best of any theatre does. They ask us to suspend our disbelief even though we’re in on the lie.
For those interested in a fun night out, you’d be hard pressed to find a better alternative. You’re unlikely to see anything quite like it.
VENUE: This show will be presented in the Bicentennial Hall (next door to The Q)
EARLY BIRD available until 11 April 2021
