Little Triangle Presents

The Wild Party

15-24 Nov 2018

“Little Triangle’s potential for presenting quality small-scale musical theatre on a shoe-string is one of the most exciting things to happen in Sydney’s indie music theatre scene”

Stage Whispers

 

Based on the explosive 1928 poem by Joseph Moncure March, The Wild Party tells the story of the scintillating Queenie and her hot-tempered lover, Burrs. In a heated moment of violence and vulnerability, Burrs suggests the two throw a party to end all parties. With a guest list worthy of Sodom and Gomorrah, the party brims with vaudeville’s bawdiest. From a brassy stripper to a devilish playboy, a sinful brother act to a fading Broadway diva, an ex-boxing champ to an ex-chorus girl, a hopeful ingénue to a pair of hopeless producers, and a flock of vivacious chorines to a morphine addict, the line-up of characters are as wicked as they come. Tension builds when Queenie’s best friend and rival, Kate, arrives with her latest accessory, Mr. Black, who catches the eye of the enchanting hostess. During the wild night of a gin, skin and fun, the guests find themselves caught in a tangle of lust, limbs, and secrets. After midnight dies, however, they are left with feelings of hopelessness and regret that linger in the sobering morning light.
