NEXT AT THE RONDO

‘IN THE NEXT ROOM’ (or ‘THE VIBRATOR PLAY’)
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Lynn Cropp

 

It is 1890 – the dawn of electricity – women and men are emerging from Victorian constraints as they push the boundaries of acceptable etiquette and behaviour within their relationships.  Unable to breast feed her baby and desperately lonely, Mrs Givings craves attention and affection. When she seeks companionship in two of her Doctor husband’s patients, this curious young woman begins to discover the truth of what goes on behind the closed door.

Nominated for both the Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, this play was a resounding hit when it opened on Broadway in 2009 and consolidated playwright Sarah Ruhl’s reputation as one of America’s most exciting contemporary writers.

In The Next Room has infinitely more to it than primitive vibrators. Sharp, witty and bursting with charisma, this is an utterly beguiling play about love, longing, science and invention.

Featuring (in order of appearance)
Danielle Aquilina, Daryl Heath, Amara Ennis,
Alicia Guglielmi, Mark Chivers, Maya Jafari & Matt O’Connor

OUR EXCITING TECHNICAL UPGRADE

PROJECT IS WELL UNDERWAY…

It’s exciting times for the Rondo theatre as we look forward to starting the work to replace our lighting and sound technology for a brand new, modern and safer system in our lovely theatre…

The project provides an integrated theatre lighting and sound system and a much needed upgrade to our buildings electrics greatly improving the safety and usability of power and data distribution throughout the theatre. Our lighting grid will be a drop down aluminium grid with brand new LED lights to give us a complete 9 quadrant Basic Lighting Setup.  All specials can be attached simply by a qualified person lowering the grid. That’s correct – lowering with 6 motors operating the rigging. We’ll also have a new sound system & speakers as well as new computer operated desk & sliders to give us an up to date, safe and successful system throughout. It’s gonna be schmick!!!

So far that means boxes and boxes full of lovely new things and we can’t wait to install it all!

The Rondo Theatre Lighting, Audio and Electrical Upgrade Project Stage 1 is sponsored by the Cairns Regional Council – Arts & Cultural Infrastructure Grants program
