Oysters

Monday, 18 February 2019 to Saturday, 16 March 2019
Adelaide Fringe

Johannes Brahms is attending a party to celebrate the first performance of his Violin Concerto – but his genius is overshadowed by his self-destructive ego. His friends are all there, but everyone is caught in a seething cauldron of passionate recriminations – and darkly hilarious outcomes. Everyone has their own agenda - the arthritic, embittered and ageing Clara Schumann from his past: jealous, unstable virtuoso Josef Joachim; pompous and waspish critic Hanslick - and gentle friend and disciple Von Herzogenberg. As the evening progresses and emotions turn on a sixpence, the play moves to its extraordinary conclusion fuelled by turbulent feelings and farcical misunderstandings. Laughing through our tears we are continually challenged with the questions: Why art? - and what price do we pay for it?

 

4 STARS. "There’s nothing like a couple of fine old English actors and a meaty bit of intimate theatre....Of course, the play belongs to Salvage. It is a fierce performance and admirable."
Samela Harris - Barefoot Review
6 STARS! "I am going to have to start handing out 6 stars It’s a wonderful piece of theatre which deserves a sellout at the Fringe. Don’t miss it"
Cathy C - This and That
