Spy Glass is a creative production of the Stanthorpe Little Theatre Company which showcases an intertwined theatrical show of poetry and music.
This production directed by Annie Mitchell and Elise O’Brien is modern, refreshing and motivating. Yet most of all, it has characteristics of theatre that you might have expected to encounter during the era of Shakespeare.
The main theme of Spy Glass is centered around a local pub. Each character brings a unique quality that is competing for their voice to be heard.
While the storyline has some twists which will be unexpected, for the most part you can sit back and thoroughly enjoy the tales of rhythmic poetry. It’s locally crafted script should be celebrated as it allows each character to present their own sense of modern world reality.
Individually they explore themes of mental health, depression, love, adultery, domestic violence, women’s rights, the effects of war and sci-fi.
The show has one more performance on 8 December at the Stanthorpe Little Theatre Co, 20 Connor Street, Stanthorpe. Tickets are a reasonable $25. You will be able to purchase drinks, snacks and enter a raffle to be drawn that evening.
I would like to congratulate the cast and crew on an amazing show and wish them every success.
