A tale of pol­i­tics, love and in­trigue

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

MUR­WILLUM­BAH The­atre Com­pany and Dou­ble­mask Youth The­atre Com­pany is invit­ing the com­mu­nity to en­joy the tale of The Three

Mus­ke­teers – with a twist. The tale of pol­i­tics, love and in­trigue has been adapted into a 1970s cop drama by the young mem­bers of Dou­ble­mask.

Dou­ble­mask artis­tic di­rec­tor Lach­lan Glasby said adapt­ing the story had its chal­lenges.

“It’s been a frus­trat­ing process, adapt­ing such an epic story into a piece of the­atre, but it’s re­ally fun,” he said.

He said the age­less tale had been re-worked by mem­bers of Dou­ble­mask into a comedic and cre­ative re-telling: “one that will surely de­light au­di­ences”.

Dou­ble­mask stu­dent Tiarn Pad­dock said the play was elo­quently done and “in­spir­ing to see what a group of young peo­ple can do”.

The Three Mus­ke­teers is play­ing at Mur­willum­bah Civic Cen­tre at 7.30pm on Fri­day, May 11 and Satur­day, May 12, and at 2pm on Satur­day, May 12.
