Every Saturday evening during October, November, and the first two weeks of December, firstly kicking off at the end of September, More or Less Theatre will be staging two new plays in Maltese at different locations around the Maltese Islands. Each play is around 50 minutes long and they will be staged one after the other in a double bill. The performance spaces will be found around the different communities and will either be in the form of small theatres or large rooms/halls. Light, sound, and projection equipment will be provided by More or Less Theatre.
The two plays are:
Play 1 by Simone Ellul is about two elderly unmarried sisters who live alone and are unexpectedly visited by their niece who has returned from Sweden following the break-up of her marriage. As the young Susan attempts to show them how to use a tablet, the three reconnect with each other and old family issues are resolved.
Play 2 by Lizzie Eldridge tells the story of Josette who lost her son to a drug overdose and wants to plant a tree on the spot in which he died. However the land is being developed into a high rise building by Tony. Will Tony be able to see past his greed and be compassionate, or will Josette be forced to give in to his brutish demands?
Rather than staging the plays at a single location, these plays will be going to the audiences by touring a number of Maltese localities during the course of the festival.
