The Trouble with Harry/New Comedy
T0588396471The Trouble with Harry
is a thrilling new play by award winning Australian playwright Lachlan Philpott, telling the story of Eugenia Falleni, the notorious ?ManWoman' of post-colonial Sydney. An Italian immigrant, Falleni lived much of her life as Harry Crawford and served time in prison for murdering her wife, Annie Birkett. Falleni enjoys a unique place in Sydney's bawdy history and her story continues to fascinate. Philpott brings his idiosyncratic take on the story to the stage, questioning heteronormative versions of history and engaging with untold lesbian and transgender stories. Through the Falleni/Crawford case, he takes a look at assumptions of gender that resonate with contemporary debates. New Comedy
by Brenda Murphy - It's Belfast, Winter 2010. The big freeze bites hard but one young man is feeling the cold more than others, as unrequited love gets him entangled in strange new queer world that makes no sense to him whatsoever. A darkly comic and irreverent tale of being on the outside looking in, this work in progress is presented as a staged reading before going into full production in 2012.
