LAUGHS IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES MES­SAGES, THEMES ABOUND INJIGSAWS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Lifestyle -

BUILD­ING sur­veyor Adam Salathiel is rel­ish­ing the op­por­tu­nity to di­rect a “su­perbly writ­ten play”.

Salathiel will di­rect Jig­saws, which will be staged dur­ing mul­ti­ple shows next month at the Old Mill Theatre in South Perth.

Writ­ten by Jen­nifer Rogers, Jig­saws is about three gen­er­a­tions of women in the same fam­ily, where rev­e­la­tions and in­dis­cre­tions from the past and present sur­face.

Salathiel, who is the artis­tic direc­tor of Laugh­ing Horse Pro­duc­tions, said the play deals with sen­si­tive is­sues and was a “fresh, bold and re­ward­ing look at life”.

“It’s a su­perbly writ­ten play which, even though set in the ’80s, has a lot of the mes­sages and themes that are still ex­tremely rel­e­vant in to­day’s so­ci­ety,” he said.

“I want the au­di­ence to connect with the var­i­ous cast mem­bers and re­late to them and their is­sues as they are por­trayed on stage.

“I also want them to laugh in all the right places yet also feel for the ac­tors and also pos­si­bly shed a tear or two.”
