Re-Visions is a satirical meta-theatrical play which investigates the power of role-playing in achieving the unrequited and how one alters reality only by perceiving it differently.
Through fast-paced dialogues, exaggerated characters and banter, the play observes social issues in a provoking manner, incorporating documentary material with illusion.
At the centre of the play, The Director decides to recreate the party his Jewish grandparents – uncertain about their future – threw the night before WW2.
Unfortunately, his crew has a different idea of how to get this party started.
This unruly troupe includes The Assistant Director who insists on being the director’s love interest. The Actress, a thirty-five-year-old, love-seeking, struggling soul. The Actor, a young and fresh stud trying to find meaning in all of this, and a mature English thespian, The Ageing Actor, who will fight to stay in the spotlight until he finds true enlightenment.
The ensemble will face the bitter truth about reality, and about the magic of theatre… there is none!
