OUR NEXT PRODUCTION
Friday 19th August - Sunday 4th September
This version of Reservoir Dogs for an all-female cast has been adapted with permission from Quentin Tarantino's original script.
They were six strangers, assembled to pull off the perfect crime. Given fake names so no one could identify the others, they thought there was no way their heist could have failed. But after a police ambush, killing one and injuring another, the criminals return to their rendezvous point and realise that one of them had to have been a police informant. But who was it?
Directed by Craig Lenaine-Smith
Performance Dates: Friday 19th August - Sunday 4th September
This production of Reservoir Dogs is for a mature audience only. It contains high level course language, sexual references, stylised depictions of violence, simulated gun shots, the use of strobe lighting effects and stage cigarettes which produce an odour.
A contemporary piece that will show the true diversity of The Mount Players!

Synopsis: This sprawling family drama spans four generations of dysfunction in one family’s lineage of secrets, abandonment, and searching for answers. It travels backwards and forwards through time as each generation struggles to come to terms with family, legacy, abandonment and betrayal, inherited secrets, and the search for connection and forgiveness. It starts with a prediction in London in 1959 and ends in Australia eighty years later.
The Director, Vicki Smith, originally started out as an actor but she has also staged many successful productions, from classic to modern, across a number of theatre groups in Melbourne. While she has loved some of the period plays she has directed with realistic and detailed sets and beautiful costumes, she enjoys the challenge of staging modern pieces with a minimal set and limited furniture and props.
‘When the Rain Stops Falling’ is such a play. Bovell is a well-known playwright having written the play ‘Speaking in Tongues’ which was the basis for the successful film ‘Lantana’ and he also co-wrote the screenplay for ‘Strictly Ballroom’.
