Threshold: sharp humour and ugly truths

Friday 3rd August / presented by James Hall

Presented by The Blue Room Theatre and The Boston Curse, Threshold is a new theatre production which tackles the delicate and sometimes dangerous relationship between mainstream media and government. This sharp comedy is an all too accurate exploration of Australia’s government and media, charting the downfall of a newspaper journalist in the wake of the media ban on Nauru Island.

Threshold flaunts a local cast with Perth theatre gems; Benj D’Addario (These Final Hours, An Idiot Amongst Us, Lighthouse Girl), Esther Longhurst (The Big Hoo Haa, Sense and Spontaneity, Multiverse Theory in D), Kylie Bywaters (Hiro, Sparrow) and Jeffrey Watkins (Macbeth). Being led by emerging writer James Palm (Pay Attention, Boy Story) and director Bridget Le May (Alone Outside, EDGE, Sudden Skies).

Threshold premieres on August 7 at The Blue Room Theatre.

James Hall spoke with James Palm and Bridget Le May about the upcoming production.
