A series of new Verbatim Plays by Joanne Denson

Out of Control

Love: It's what we all want, but what happens when love gets Out of Control?

A two year project in the making, Meg has appeared in several incarnations of this 'Powerful and heartbreaking' series of new verbatim plays collated and directed by AUB graduate Joanne Denson. With new laws only recently being formed against coercive and controlling behaviour in a relationship, Out of Control could not have been created at a more apt time.

 

Denson takes the real words of survivors of controlling relationships - interviewed anonymously - and weaves them together as a series of poignant, heartbreaking monologues with almost artisanal flair, before handing the text over to her cast.

 

Praised furiously for its 'stark simplicity and heartbreaking realism', Out of Control sees Meg take on hyper-realism in a new and compelling way.

Julius Ceaser

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.  The Lighthouse Theatre in Poole, plays host to  Shakespeare’s political thriller.

 

Fola Adeyoola and Yvonne Grundy play Brutus and Cassius, leaders of the coup, whilst Cy Grove plays Caesar, Meg MacMillian plays Calpurnia (+3 others) and Dilan Raithatha is Mark Antony, who brings Rome back under control after the conspirators’ defeat.

 

With a versatile, sleek and modern set designed by MaryJane Moan, costumes designed by Alex White, lighting by Neill Brinkworth and music by Joe Payne, the piece proved a sleek and visionary retelling of Shakespeare's political masterpiece.

 

Julius Caesar played at the Lighthouse Theatre from 15 February 2018 for four days.

Clybourne Park

Hailed as ‘shockingly entertaining’ and ‘appallingly funny’, Bruce Norris’ hilarious satire Clybourne Park explores the ever contentious themes of race and property ownership.

 

In 1959 Chicago, Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bed at a knock-down price. The sale creates ripples of discontent amongst the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park when the new owners turn out to be a black family.

 

Fast forward to 2009 and the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve whose plans to raze the house and start again is met with a similar response. Are the issues beneath the floorboards actually the same fifty years on? Meg MacMillian plays Betsey / Lindsey.

 

Scathingly funny, with a beautiful set designed by Alexandra Barras, costumes designed by Isabelle Farina and directed by Sean Aita, Clybourne Park played at the AUB Studio Theatre from 12 November 2017 for five days.

Alice

Set in modern times, the play highlights the real existence of the novel’s main character as Alice Liddle, played by Sarah Cribdon, whose life has changed after the death of her brother. Alice learns, under the guidance of some strangely familiar faces, to embrace her vulnerability in the wake of the death, which all began with a visit from a cool white rabbit played by Pete MacHale.

 

Directed by Luke Kernaghan and Assistant Director Meg MacMillian, the witty and fast-paced play takes the audience through a plethora of scenes and mystery lands in search of a mysterious heart.

 

Alice played at the AUB Studio Theatre from 13 December 2017 for four days.
