Delirium By Amy Bell

For the chill-seeking theatre-goer comes a series of gleefully twisted vignettes. Playwright Amy Bell combines a slightly depraved wit with a penchant for blood-spilling to bring you her latest celebration of theatrical horror.

Amy Bell’s comedy macabre makes for a deliciously gory night at the theatre.

In the soporific heat of a North Queensland wet season, mosquitoes buzz incessantly as there six stories unfold, each with its own grislt twist. Bell’s ill-fated and oddly comic characters make their way as best they can through events that often and inevitably go terribly, terribly wrong.

Bell’s inspiration for the work derives from a global concern. She says, “Our disconnection with mother nature generates a poison in ourselves as we lose track of an essential balance…theatre is a powerful tool; it inspires thought, and thought generates action. So I decided to write.”

Not for the faint-hearted, Delirium is for that discerning theatre-goer who enjoys the occassional chilling lick up the spine.

JUTE promises to provide a very different experience for Delirium. The theatre seats will be retracted to create a large open space that will be filled by the set design elements of the performance.

Each audience member will be given a wooden stool as they enter the theatre space. The audience can decide where they sit in the space and will follow the acton of the play by picking up their stool and following the actors. There is no right or wrong about where you sit. Please honour the performance area within which each element of the performance is taking place.

Delirium is directed by Suellen Maunder. Delirium features adult themes, so it is recommended that audience members be 15+.   

Catch Delirium from September 26 to October 4 at JUTE Theatre Company 96 Abbott Street, Cairns.
