METAMORPHOSES
by MARY ZIMMERMAN

8 FEB - 10 MAR 2018 | OLD FITZ THEATRE


Re-imagined for the 40th Anniversary of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras

“Bodies, I have in mind…”

Set in and around a body of water, Metamorphoses collides the ancient and the modern to celebrate the primal body and the staying power of love and desire
in the face of constant and inevitable change.

Savage and tender, queer and irreverent, with vivid imagery and visionary theatricality, Ovid’s poem of ancient Greek tales is roused to soul-stirring life.

“RECAPTURES THE PRIMAL ALLURE OF THE THEATRE... IT SHOWS THAT THEATRE CAN PROVIDE NOT JUST ESCAPE BUT SOMETIMES A GLIMPSE OF THE DIVINE.” – TIME MAGAZINE

**NOMINATED FOR 3 TONY AWARDS INCLUDING BEST PLAY
