Walt Disney reads you a screenplay he wrote. About himself. And his death.
An adrenaline charged theatrical odyssey, a supersonic portrait of the man who forever changed the American Dream; an unforgettable fantasia. New York writer Lucas Hnath’s hit play receives a daring and comical Australian premiere care of l’enfant terribles MKA and Chapel Street’s Provocaré Festival of the Arts.
Performed by the Manderson-Galvin family.
Aided by a pack of cigarettes, a litre of vodka, his family, and countless dead lemmings, Walt Disney reads you a screenplay he wrote. About himself. And his death.
A Public Reading of An Unproduced Screenplay about the Death of Walt Disney is about fantasies, corporate monopolies, the price of success, and the Disney Dynasty. Walt Disney, his brother Roy, Walt’s daughter Dianne, and his son-in-law Ron. This wonderful spectacle is staged entirely from an elite boardroom and/or magical castle, and features jazz score from Jules Pascoe (JAZZ Party, Husky).
Starring a very real family:
The nuclear unit of MKA’s Tobias Manderson-Galvin and Kerith Manderson-Galvin, and their parents Distinguished Professor Lenore Manderson & Patrick Galvin (AM).
