News: @torchlight_co Present Liliom: A Legend in Seven Scenes @BreadandRosesTC 25th-29th August




Name of Show: Liliom: A Legend in Seven Scenes

Author: Ferenc Molnar

Adapted by: Mark Jackson

from an English Translation by: Benjamin F. Glazer

Production Brief: “Liliom” is Hungarian playwright Molnár Ferenc’s troubling expressionistic masterpiece about two broken souls who find each other. Liliom is a carousel barker and Julie is a young serving girl. It is set in Budapest in the early 1900’s and explores themes of being an outlander, domestic abuse and the value of one human life. Our production seeks to answer the question, “what kind of world creates these two broken people?” The venue will be transformed into a semi-immersive fairground, which becomes our backdrop to tell the story. Liliom is best known as the source story for the musical “Carousel.”

Company Brief: Torchlight Collective is a theatre company that strives to Reveal Light, Instill Hope and Renew Discourse. Theatre should get people talking about how, as individuals, we can revitalize ourselves and the world around us.
