‘The Balcony’ by Jean Genet and adapted by Barbara Wright and Terry Hands is a play of illusion and reality.
This performance sees a variety of colourful characters act out their bizarre fantasies within the enclosed walls of a brothel. All they're trying to do is forget about the troubles of the revolution outside. The Madame wants nothing more but to keep her 'House of Illusions' safe, but whilst trying to do, so finds herself entangled in the complicated lives of people from her past and present. When faced with an ultimatum of erasing herself and the relationships in which she is involved in or saving her brothel, illusion and reality run into each other head on. What will she choose to do?
This play sees the destruction of everything real and brings forth the rise of the bizarre and the absurd. The question in the end is; Whether you can tell the difference between illusion and reality?
Performed by Drama and Theatre Studies students at Aberystwyth University and directed by David Blumfield. The performance is both provocative and comical. A must see.
