THE DAPHNE MASSACRE
Written by Donna Abela

18-21 OCTOBER 2023
Isabella is about to undergo the pre-marital extraction of all her teeth. Her Mother Figures, the Nurse, and a toothless bride-to-be called Daphne, nearly convince her of the economic and spiritual benefits of this age-old custom. However, the Dentist's lusty Cook changes her mind by exposing her to a world of appetite and abundance.The central metaphor of this theatrical and non-naturalistic play is deliberately absurd, and poses comparisons with extreme dieting and cosmetic surgery.
