Edmond

Two Peas are showcasing their second performance, Edmond, by American playwright David Mamet at the Old 505 Theatre.

Edmond comes home from work one day and decides to visit a fortune teller. This impulse move stirs something within him to stop working at his dead-end job to search for something more meaningful to his life.

The company chose this piece as their second performance due to their adoration of writer David Mamet and his pure talent when it comes to writing plays.

“Edmond is a work complete with all the qualities there are to love about his work: sharp dialogue, razor wit, incredible characters and honest truths,” says Two Peas.

However, they are open to the idea that the audience may hate the play.

“Edmond is a morality play, designed to ridicule our own personal discomfort. We love it, and we welcome the possibility that some of our audiences might not.”

Their debut performance was We’re Bastards by Two Peas’ own Oleg Pupovac. (AMal)

July 15 to 26. Old 505 Theatre, 342 Elizabeth St, Surry Hills. $22-$33. Tickets & info: www.thetwopeas.com
