Ma Rridx Immur
The Manoel Theatre and the rubberbodies collective with the support of Arts Council Malta present the Francis Ebejer award winning script Ma Rridx Immur by Leanne Ellul. Featuring Ruth Borg, Ryan Cutajar, Marta Vella and Josette Ciappara, this play is directed by Jimmy Grima.
At twenty years of age, even though Casey is suffering from a terminal illness, death isn’t such an issue when compared to the other problems she has to face on a daily basis. Through intimate dialogues which are filled with tension and unrest, we unravel the relationship between Casey and the rest of the characters – Alfio, Casey’s boyfriend; his grandmother; and Casey’s best friend. Her father too. He is the childhood nightmare that keeps on resurfacing. Till this very day, the past seems to continue to haunt her, so much violence, so much cruelty.
This play explores life, love, anger and death. The future? A distorted dream.
20-21 March, 2015. Teatru Manoel – 8pm
