Stephen Sewell’s writing has once again graced theatre stages, with WELCOME THE BRIGHT WORLD being performed at the State Theatre Company of South Australia.

The ambitious production is in collaboration with performance group House of Sand. Transporting audiences to 1980s Berlin, Sewell’s play throws into question truth, humanity, and the tenuous line between right and wrong.

Sewell’s epic script is having its resurgence after a considerable period of time, having had it’s first performances at Nimrod in 1982, and at Parade Theatre from 1969-1999.

The play runs from 20 September – 6 October, tickets can still be purchased at the State Theatre Company website.

“WELCOME TO THE BRIGHT WORLD and welcome back Stephen Sewell. His turbulent, engrossing, digressive, disputative drama has been greatly missed.”  The Australian
