Presenting the New Zealand debut of Mister Melancholy by Matt Cameron, as part of Auckland Fringe 2021.
“The only problem people have with being a recluse is that they might have to do it alone.”
Ollie is the keeper of a lighthouse, Enzo keeps forgetting to replace its light, Margot prefers to keep their island in the dark. Dolores has run away from the circus and has a package to deliver…
A surreal parable of solitude and sorrow, Mister Melancholy examines the relationship between grief and loneliness, exploring why sometimes, isolation feels safer than human connection, and how the magnitude of the past can overwhelm or illuminate the hope of a future.
Directed by Katie Burson, designed by Rob Byrne, produced by Alyssa Medel, sound design by Chris Marshall and performed by Hamish Annan, Mustaq Missouri, Irasa Siave and Susannah Smith-Roy.
