Date Night

My Christmas gift from Benjamin last year was season tickets to the Malthouse Theatre. It has been a wonderful gift that keeps on giving. We have seen a whole lot of theatre that we would not normally think to see, and it is the perfect excuse to get a babysitter and have a date night! 
 
Friday night was Blood Wedding, pretty heavy theme, but wonderful at the same time.  The mother played by Mariola Fuentes was partially outstanding.  The thing I found most fascinating was that half the play was in Spanish without translation; strangly it didn't seem to matter that I don't understand a word of Spanish... all was understood.

So far this year we have seen: The Plague Dances, Circa, Briwyant and Blood Wedding.  My favorite so far was Circa....fantastic modern circus; had me cringing and laughing at the same time... truly entertaining!
