PERPETUAL WAKE – SUBIACO ARTS CENTRE

Perpetual Wake
Perpetual Wake

For the next hour and a half I was sucked into the world of theatre, loving every single minute.

A chilly Saturday night at the Subiaco Arts Centre, with wine in hand, fairy lights twinkling and the feeling of anticipation surrounded the venue.

The audience began to shuffle to their seats, got comfy and the lights went dim.

For the next hour and a half I was sucked into the world of theatre, loving every single minute.

PERPETUAL WAKE is a theatrical experience like no other – think a sprawling, comedic saga set within two juxtaposing worlds that slowly infuse into one another. From the outside, three writers battle it out in a world of literary hoax. Inside a book, a man picks up a woman whilst hitchhiking in the middle of the night. A stag is shot. The past becomes the present and the edges of reality begin to blur.

Written and directed by the award-winning theatre makers, and co-founders of The Last Great Hunt, PERPETUAL WAKE brings together the team behind 2017’s THE ADVISORS and 2018’s IMPROVEMENT CLUB featuring ‘Hunters’; Arielle Gray, Chris Isaacs and Jeffrey Jay Fowler with guest theatre makers and designers; Charlotte Otton, Karen Cook, Max Juniper and Bryan Woltjen.

The whole cast did a fantastic  job, a personal stand out was writer and performer Jeffrey Jay Fowler, stealing the show with the witty comedy that I found relatable for this generation.

The set was simple but used well, and the sound and lighting were amazing.

Without giving too much away you are glued to the stage, constantly laughing and trying to keep up as the worlds continue to change and begin to blur together, it leaves you questioning what actually happened and what the book was really about.

Perpetual Wake is running at the Subiaco Arts Centre until the 7 September, it’s well worth seeing and my favourite theatre performance this year.
