Funny, poignant and illuminating, Harvey Fierstein’s
Tony Award winning cult-classic Torch Song Trilogy
makes an electrifying return to Darlinghurst Theatre Company
Harvey Fierstein’s intensely personal collection of three plays chronicles a Jewish New York drag-queen’s quest for love, respect and a life of which he can be proud.
From a failed affair with a reluctant lover, to a burgeoning relationship with a young fashion model, Arnold Beckoff’s greatest torment in life remains his turbulent relationship with his mother.
Director Stephen Colyer (Kiss of the Spider Woman, Falsettos) has assembled an all-star cast including Simon Corfield (Packed to the Rafters, Angels in America) reprising his acclaimed performance as Arnold, Tim Draxl (A Place to Call Home, Miss Fisher’s Murder), Stephen Madsen (Muriel’s Wedding the Musical, The View Upstairs), Hilary Cole (Muriel’s Wedding the Musical, Kinky Boots), Kate Raison (Two, Dark Voyager) and Imraan Daniels (Between Worlds, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat). Musical Director Phil Scott (Wharf Revue) will also be the accompanist during the season.
Darlinghurst Theatre Company continues their longstanding commitment of telling LGBTQI stories with the reprisal of director Stephen Colyer’s 2013 critically acclaimed production of Torch Song Trilogy.
