BENJAMIN MARY by Pasquale M Palmieri

directed by Mimmo Mangione
Alex Read Theatre Performances Inc

This pièce of theatre of the absurd in two acts is set in contemporary Melbourne, exploring various levels of illusion and reality in a hetero relationship, the tale of a couple (Benjamin and Mary) in three phases of their relationship: at 25 just married and in love dreaming of a life together, at 50 facing the apex of continuous ego confrontations, at 75, both resigned to the unfolding of their story. Alternating between humour and sadness, Benjamin Mary dares to expose the naked truth of a couple’s relationship as it transforms throughout the years and, guided by an endless sequences of Chinese boxes, points the finger at the weakest points in a relationship.
