Fresh after the success of Paper Doll and Fracture at Sydney’s The Old Fitz Theatre, New Ghosts returns home to Perth with its acclaimed season of The Wind in the Underground. This new and creative work will be a WA premiere, playing at the State Theatre Centre’s Studio Underground from the 27th January – 3rd February, as part of Fringe World and The Blue Room Theatre’s Summer Nights 2018.
The world traveller returns to the front gate of the family home. Times change and memories fade. Four siblings return to their roots and are faced with the decision of whether to sell their father’s house, their home; childhood dynamics and memories re-emerge, and the complexities of family bonds are exposed and examined in this heart-warming and compelling story.
A new play by Perth born and raised playwright Sam O’Sullivan, The Wind in the Underground is inspired by O’Sullivan’s own journeys, family experiences and the houses he remembers, growing up in Perth’s eastern hills.
Directed by New Ghosts founder and artistic director Lucy Clements (Fracture and The Remedy, The Blue Room Theatre, Paper Doll The Old Fitz) and featuring an incredibly talented cast including professional stage actors Bishanyia Vincent (One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest – Sport for Jove, A Christmas Carol – KXT, Lighten Up – Griffin Theatre Company) and Whitney Richards (La Marea – PIAF, Shrine, Flood, Boy Gets Girl and Arcadia – Black Swan State Theatre Company, Anytown, Mummy Loves you Betty Ann Jewel, House of Fun and Apocalypse Perth – The Blue Room Theatre), The Wind in the Underground marks a homecoming for New Ghosts, as well as its Perth born and raised cast and collaborators.
The Wind in the Underground plays at the State Theatre Centre’s Studio Underground from 27th January – 3rd February as part of Perth Fringe World and Summer Nights. Don’t miss this exciting work by the theatre company that continues to set a new benchmark for fresh, creative and entertaining independent theatre.
