Love Suicides  

Love Suicides $20.90 ex GST
$22.99 inc GST
Love Suicides is John Romeril’s homage to the eighteenth century Japanese master playwright, Chikamatsu Monzaemon. In a daring blend of cultures the play plots the destiny of two lovers—one from Osaka, the other from Perth. 

The result is an epic story of our times: audacious in its conception, breathtaking in its vision, passionate in its realisation. It is an important play from a highly original and provocative playwright.


Cast : 3M, 2F, puppeteers, musicians
