The creative collaborations by playwright Daniel Keene and director Ariette Taylor that went under the moniker of The Keene/Taylor Project resulted in some of the most dynamic theatre of the late 1990s and early 2000s.
A total of 47 productions (including 2000’s The funniest man in the world, pictured) were staged over this period, but though the pair have been busy since, it’s been more than a decade since they last worked together. All of which should make hotter the news that tickets are available for Dreamers, the long-awaited reunion of Keene and Taylor at fortyfivedownstairs.
The work was originally written for France’s Tabula Rasa theatre company, and follows 60-something Anne as she begins a relationship with a much younger man of a different race and “must face an avalanche of prejudice and disapproval”.
Dreamers opens in November, with early bird tickets at $35 on sale now.
