‘Mad Max for kids’ in Playlovers’ The Trol­leys

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Stage -

FLOREAT-based the­atre com­pany Playlovers will present a play de­scribed as Mad Max for kids.

The Trol­leys, di­rected by Wem­b­ley Downs res­i­dent Andie Hol­born, is about a dan­ger­ous world where light in jars is the most im­por­tant com­mod­ity.

For a group of un­lucky chil­dren, known as the Trol­leys, their jars of light are fad­ing and they don’t know why.

Hol­born said the play’s mes­sage, de­spite be­ing dystopian, was hope­ful, pos­i­tive and hu­mor­ous.

“The Trol­leys ex­am­ines the duty of care each gen­er­a­tion has to­wards the other,” he said.

“The older gen­er­a­tion is re­spon­si­ble for gift­ing young peo­ple a healthy world in which they can live fruit­fully and with­out fear.

“The younger gen­er­a­tion, as cus­to­di­ans of this gift, need to be re­silient and keep hope alive; to do bet­ter than the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion in the way they care for the world and their loved ones.”

The Trol­leys plays at 8 Draper Street, Floreat, 8pm, May 20-21, 26-28 and 2pm, May 22, 29. Email book­ings@playlovers.org.au.
