Vivid White
Melbourne Theatre Company presents
Vivid White

18 Nov 2017 to 23 Dec 2017

Liz and Ben have known Cynthia and Evan for years and would never let anything get in the way of their friendship. Except. When the couples each set their sights on buying the same house – well, that’s different. Forget friendship, forget respect, forget human decency: this is the property market. And nothing, not even the imminent collapse of civilisation itself, can stop the zombie-like single-mindedness of buying the perfect house.

In his previous play commissioned by MTC, The Beast, Eddie Perfect’s wild satirical mind created a living nightmare out of middle-class aspirations. Vivid White goes even further, adding satirical songs to the mix for a truly merciless night of outrageous comedy.

It is becoming a small tradition at MTC to stage plays that take bold, healthy swipes at Australia’s sacred institutions, and who better to direct this vicious new satire than Dean Bryant, with a stellar cast led by The Speechmaker’s Brent Hill and two-time Helpmann Award-winner Verity Hunt-Ballard, still glowing from her triumph as Mary Poppins on the musical stage.
