Furious Angels

30 October, 2010 by 1 Comment

A one-man tour de force set within the confines of a decaying 1930s mental asylum, Furious Angels is a piercing new work from rising Queensland playwright David Burton  (April’s Fool) and director Travis Dowling  (Lazarus Won’t Get Out of Bed).

With the doors of his asylum facing closure, head physician Dr Aintel is in no position to face the disruptive challenge of another new charge, the charming yet confounding Will. Watching on, as Aintel grapples to maintain power over his asylum, patients and nurse Lenore, is Dizzy, a patient-come-prophet suffering from visions of history and the terrifying future which approaches.

Daniel Mulvihill (Toy Symphony, 25 Down) splits himself between the five inhabitants of Furious Angels’ fragile, and at times, darkly amusing world to create a theatre experience both electrifying and moving.
