DANIEL KEENE'S THE CURTAIN

Twice winner of the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Drama, renowned playwright Daniel Keene returns to fortyfivedownstairs with the Australian premiere of The Curtain from February 26. A humorous examination of ageing, vulnerability and prickly friendship in a country town lodging house, The Curtain follows two old fellows, Leon and Francis, who, after arriving home late one night are greeted by their landlady with some disturbing news that will change their lives forever. Since 2000, over 80 productions of Keene's work have been presented in Europe, mostly in France with the playwright appointed to the rank of Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture for his contribution to French Culture. We have three doubles to the 5pm show on Sunday, March 1. Entries received on [email protected] before midnight tonight have the chance to win.
