We would like to have a poster designed that would catch the attention of theatre-goers.
Rowena, Eric, Sasha and Vale were living in their perfect house share. Until Adam, Vale’s boyfriend, entered the scene.
Disgusted by his seemingly violent nature and worried about their friend, Rowena, Eric and Sasha plot to murder him. When the group decides to include the ignorant Adam in their plans, things turn both humorous and awry. Black comedy To the Death toys with relationship dynamics and misrepresentation, reminding us that things might not always be as they appear.
Details about the poster:
It would have to feature our tagline: "Ever had a housemate you wanted to kill?"
Other information would also have to be present on the poster. These include:
"A play by Maddy Butler"
Showing at Newtown Theatre, corner Bray and King Streets
November 30 - December 11
Tues - Sat 8pm, Sun 2pm
For tickets and enquiries:
The director has indicated the poster could have a sketch of the 3 flatmates trying to kill another. This would conjure idea of children (ie young adults who are acting like children) and the comedic side as well. The stick figure idea is attached.
Another idea: "TO THE DEATH" and in the first O a gunshot with blood seeping out. Something like that. Or TO THE DEATH with different colours seeping through for the whole poster.
Although the attached sketch and the 'blood seeping out' are our ideas, we are also interested to see what the synopsis evokes in a designer. So let your imagination run wild.
This poster will be seen around Sydney and featured in most theatre magazines as the artwork that represents it.
