August 23 - September 2, 2017
The Depot Theatre, 142 Addison Road
DescriptionHave you ever been stuck in a cycle that felt like one trivial thing or day after another? Ever thought there’s got to be more to life than this? Charlie has. Charlie is the main character in “Modern Jesus,” Fledgling Theatre Co’s latest production to hit Sydney’s independent theatre circuit.
Charlie works at a local supermarket. She is entirely dissatisfied with her life to date. In a moment of pure frustration she assaults a charity collector who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. This moment of liberation leads to Charlie losing her job, but also ignites her desire for change and rebellion. Modern Jesus is a play about the line between idealism and extremism and how easy it is for the two to blur.
This is Fledgling Theatre Company’s second Australian offering. The company was founded in 2015 by a group of friends and alumni who met studying at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London. An international company with bases in both London and Sydney, they aim to create raw and visceral stories that explore all facets of the human condition.
“Modern Jesus” runs from 23 Aug – 2 Sept at Marickville’s The Depot Theatre. Come witness the revolt!
