'An intense, raw and compelling piece of theatre'
FIESTA is the tale of Jake, an American writer living in 1920's Paris. Obsessed with bullfighting, he shares a giddy social life with expat novelist Robert Cohn. The arrival of the irresistible Lady Brett Ashley, a mysterious figure from Jake’s traumatic past, will turn Jake’s world upside down.
Featuring a stellar ensemble of actors paired with explosive live jazz act Trio Farouche, free flowing booze, dynamic choreography, and a contemporary design take on the sexy 20's, this bold production saw the novel''s sensual, kinetic beauty and its brutal, raw subtext transported onto an intimate stage.
