Abstract

A world premiere production by one of Australia’s leading playwrights, Third Person takes place in the ruins of Berlin not long after the fall of Hitler’s Third Reich. At the same time it is a post-modern sequel to Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. In a playfully savage comment on displacement, migration, vengeance, and loss, Third Person mixes times, places, genders, races, politics, sex, music and dance to remind of how close we always are to the results of war, exile and disaster.

With student musicians creating an original score as part of the action, and a diverse student cast combined with a professional creative team, Third Person will showcase the best of theatre culture at The University of Melbourne.
