Quotes & Highlights

“… courageous, confronting, intelligent and magisterially considered theatre. It doesn’t valorise imagination, but poses it as a tormenting problem… the towering achievement here is to stimulate discussion around issues of cultural appropriation, the rights and responsibilities of those who imagine and speak for others.” —The Age
“__The Guardian __(U.K.) recently ranked ":http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/ten-best-theatre-shows-of-2012Ganesh Versus the Third Reich as one of the Top Ten Best Theater Performances of 2012.
Watch a video trailer for Ganesh Versus the Third Reich.
Ganesh Versus the Third Reich has won the 2009 Kit Denton Fellowship for Courageous Writing, the 2011 Age Critics’ Award for best new Australia work at the Melbourne festival, three Green Room Awards for Best Ensemble Performance (Alternative & Hybrid Performance), Best Direction (Theatre), and Best Production (Theatre) and the 2012 Helpmann Award for Best Play.

Description

Patrons are advised that the performance of Ganesh Versus the Third Reich contains coarse language, adult themes and portrayal of Lord Ganesh which some may find troubling. The production is a work of fiction and does not purport to be an accurate representation of historical fact or scripture.
