We are very pleased to have 2 x double passes to The Confidence Man at North Melbourne Town hall for Thursday, 29.08.13 at 6.30pm. If you would like them please be first to email [email protected]
When a large sports bag full of cash is brought into Peter’s very ordinary home, his family gets caught up in a sinister and disturbing chain of events. You are invited to step onto the stage floor and into this gripping thriller, experiencing first-hand the sordid betrayal and moral philandering that’s about to blanket this suburban dream.
The Confidence Man is performed by six invited audience members, equipped with a headset and oversized mask representing a character, to play out the story. Those who prefer to watch can survey the action from the sidelines, eavesdropping on the characters’ most private thoughts and conversations via headphones.
In The Confidence Man, Dogville meets Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt. A morally complex tale complete with goodies, baddies, and a dose of good old-fashioned psychotic menace, The Confidence Man unfolds with the gripping intimacy of a tale whispered in your ear.
