Independent Geelong theatre company Skin Of Our Teeth Productions recently turned three years old. Three successful years has seen eight fantastic productions from Pride and Prejudice to Macbeth. Now, just in time to celebrate their birthday, Skin Of Our Teeth is proud to present
their bold and sumptuous new adaptation of E.M. Forster’s novel, ‘A Room With A View’, which is widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s greatest novels.
Adapting Forster’s sun-splashed novel that has already spawned an iconic movie is, one imagines, a tricky business. Yet Geelong’s Emma Watson’s adaptation bolsters EM Forster’s career defining literary ideas: of feminism, the belief in freedom and truth, while adding grace and a gentle learnedness, making for an enjoyable evening of uplifting storytelling and theatrical escapism.
Following the story of English rose Lucy Honeychurch touring Italy with her prim spinster cousin Charlotte Bartlett as chaperone, this is a beloved play about change and loss, pretension and honestly, expectation and entitlement, and ultimately how spontaneous actions in a rigid world of set social codes can shatter and explode into life changing potential.
With its cast of vivid characters, this elegant comedy, written in 1908, is widely recognised as one of the finest novels of the twentieth century. Foster was the master of building romantic suspense out of psychological repression.
“Since launching in 2014, Skin of Our Teeth has been dedicated to presenting exhilarating and egalitarian theatrical experiences to Geelong audiences,” says the company’s artistic director, Christine Davey.
“Our rendering of well-loved pieces of literature will be a feast for the senses,” says Davey.
A Room With A View will be performed at Shenton Theatre in Geelong, from August 11 – 26.
