La Mama Theatre

Event Date: 14 September 2016 to 25 September 2016
Author / Presenters: Written and directed by Cameron Sievers

In this alert and provocative satire, a somewhat established writer is presenting a play that is remarkably similar to Hamlet (as yet unknown) as stage two of a funding application supported by a theatre company that remains affected by funding cuts.

Although committee members are briefly transformed due to the play’s relationship to personal given-circumstances, the writer does a poor job of selling its virtues, and the proposal is rejected on the grounds that it fails to meet a range of community, diversity, and economic benchmarks.

Committee is a timely projection of what happens when artistic essence and vision are obscured by the demand for the measurement of artistic value in an environment of funding impoverishment.
