Piese de Chris Edmund

Bacon And Eggs
Two Australian actors, who are performing in a poorly reviewed and received play that they have devised and taken to the Dublin Fringe Festival, drown their sorrows and find themselves lost and frightened in early hours of the morning. They break into a gallery in search of safety and some culture when they find themselves face to face with the bad tempered ghost of Francis Bacon, one of the greatest painters of the 20th Century.
Fidel’s Cigar
Set in Cuba the play explores the destinies and relationship of Che and Fidel as we follow the complex series of events which lead to the death of Che in the Bolivian jungle.
Going Under
‘Offers an imaginative and inventive perspective on the increasingly confused issues of what it means to develop a personal and an Australian identity. Sharp streetwise humour, as the characters struggle to come to terms with the passing of old values and the uncertainty about what should take their place’ - Ron Banks. The West Australian
It is the summer of 1980, and a young English director leaves his girlfriend in London for a California production of Chekhov’s Three Sisters. His summer idyll is soon disturbed by a suicide, an assassination, and an ardent affair, as he and the vivid characters around him struggle to understand America on the brink of the decade of greed.
Stalin’s Orchard
Edmund’s fourth play in a series of political works, Stalin’s Orchard attempts to unravel some of the mysteries of the Russian Revolution, the collapse of communism and the Soviet bloc, and the uncertain but ever-fascinating future of this vast and intriguing land.
The Butcher’s Dance
Inspired by the tango, ‘The Butcher’s Dance’ takes us from nineteenth-century Buenos Aires, where the dance was invented by immigrants amidst the brothels of the city, to 1929 and the eve of the Wall Street crash in New York, back to Buenos Aires in 1976, where a family is persecuted during the ‘Dirty War’, and finally to New York 9/11 and the attack on the Twin Towers. The stories of the characters are interlinked over the epochs, as is the evolution of the tango, in a tapestry that examines the links between people and cultures in their common humanity. The play juxtaposes real historical characters and events with fictional characters in a dynamic and exciting way.
The Devil’s Tunic
This epic thriller begins as the tomb of Mary Magdalene is discovered in SW France and her DNA is tracked to Australia. The play moves from Biblical times to Medieval France, where the Cathars are persecuted, and then to nineteenth-century France and the discovery of scrolls which may lead to the Holy Grail. Finally it takes us to contemporary Australia where a prostitute, a Muslim refugee and a Scrabble champion each believe that they and they alone are the descendant of the union of Christ and Mary Magdalene. Meanwhile America has declared war in the Middle East. If the descendant of Christ can’t be found in time, the characters may face extinction.
The Swell Party
An imaginative retelling of interactions between the artistic, literary and social luminaries of the 1920s who based themselves in France. Central characters include Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald and James Joyce
​Before I Get Old
Set in England in the 1950s and 60s, we follow the often comic fortunes of a group of kids – from the chaos of primary school to the uniformity of secondary school, sexual awakening and the trials and tribulations of adolescence. The austerity of post-war Britain gives way to the freedoms and problems of the ‘Swinging Sixties’ as the kids and their parents face a changing world and values.
