Life After George
4 Feb, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
About the Show:
SYNOPSIS:- Peter George, charismatic academic, idealist, lover of life, is dead. His 3 wives, and his daughter, come together to arrange his funeral. So begins a fascinating retrospective on George’s life. As the true nature of the man unfolds, so these women discover more than they bargained for about the lives they have lived, both in and out of his shadow.
A moving and perceptive insight into social change across three decades. From the student barricades of the late 1960’s to the new millennium, the role of the university has been crucial. And it is on this stage that the politically uncompromising George played out his brilliant tempestuous career.

Director’s comments :- I require experienced dedicated actors and crew for this one. If you know that I am unfamiliar with your work, then please send me your acting CV. Expect rehearsal period to be longer than normal, due to the intricate script and the accompanying technical plot. It will be a challenge for all. One that I am looking forward to setting in motion.
