After seven packed performances of Sunrise, FM Theatre Productions has announced an additional three performances of the critically-acclaimed comedy being performed in the intimate setting of the Splendid in Valletta. The extra shows will run this week from 27 to 29 February.
Penned by actor, comedian, writer and cartoonist Jessie Cave, who is best known for her role as Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter film series, Sunrise is comic storytelling of the highest order, as the protagonist Jessie shares stories about dating again after a complex break-up and trying to get her personal life in order, all before her kids wake up.
Audiences to the first weekend of this one-woman show have been wowed by Rebecca Camilleri’s poignant and oftentimes hilarious portrayal of Jessie. It is a roller-coaster of a role, and the actor has expertly captured the myriad emotions of the many characters she inhabits, while director Chiara Hyzler has drawn on her experience and unique vision to bring the script to life.
“We are extremely thrilled by the reaction we’ve had to the show so far,” says Hyzler. “That so many members of the audience have commented to us that they relate in one way or the other to the characters that we meet has made our efforts extra special.
“It also gives us enormous satisfaction that due to the demand of tickets we will have the pleasure of bringing this fantastic and hilarious production to audiences who may have missed out on booking so far, allowing us to share Jessie’s wonderful experiences even further,” she adds.
Tickets for Sunrise are priced at €20 and are very limited, so book yours today via email on [email protected] or by calling the ticket hotline on 9904 8169.
