Neighbourhood Watch

by Lally Katz

Producer: Illuminate Educate    Director: Susanna Dowling


with Gertraud Ingeborg, Anne Wilson, Skyler Ellis, Andrew Lindquist, Linden Wilkinson, Odile Le Clezio and Steven Kreamer

'This is a good production. Gertraud Ingeborg excels as Ana, an octogenarian Hungarian widow who epitomizes the belligerent survivor of her generation. Anne Wilson is energetic as Catherine, even if her assurance and self-possession is somewhat at odds with her character. The pace is handled with practical efficiency by director Susanna Dowling, who gets the most out of all her actors in an admirably complete production. I was charmed by Isabella Andronos' clever and minimalistic set and elegant work on costume.' Daniel Morgan Potts, Sunday 31 May 2015

'Neighbourhood Watch is a part real, part imaginary drama about an actress Catherine (Anne Wilson) and her neighbour Ana (Gertaud Ingeborg) from Hungary.

Gertraud Ingeborg immediately engaged as the cantankerous and mysterious Hungarian neighbourly busybody.

Catherine is a troubled soul – haunted by a past relationship. She has a quirky flatmate Ken (Skyler Ellis) who is also struggling to find his feet.

The pace quickens when Andrew Linquist  (as her ex boyfriend Martin) smouldered onto the stage and later portrayed one of the terrifying characters from Ana’s past.

This was a simple but attractive looking production which overcame the limitations of the Bondi Pavilion by having actors walk in from unexpected vantage points'.  David Spicer

Please pass on a huge congratulations to all of you for a fabulous production last night. Having seen the Belvoir production here and in Melbourne I can assure you that I really enjoyed your production even more!! I loved Gertraud's comments about storytelling in the Q&A and I think that's what you all did so beautifully - showed out students that you don't need flashing revolves to make this story work so effectively on stage. Loved the characterisation - Anne there was a beautiful bittersweet vulnerability to your Catherine, and Skyler found such lovely comic potential in Ken (one of the more trickier roles in the play).  All actors were superb and I know this is theatrical heresy but I totally preferred Gertraud's Ana to Robyn Nevin's (that also may have something to do with a Nevin run in many years ago....). You've given the students so much to discuss and write about and we can't wait to have you back to Brigo in Feb 2017!

Thanks again for coming up our way and all the very best :)

Kind Regards
