MELBOURNE FRINGE FESTIVAL *6 shows only!

After its award-winning season at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe, ECHOES has been consistently touring the world. The show transferred Off-West End in London, and Off-Broadway in New York. At Adelaide Fringe it broke records by winning five major awards (including Best Theatre) and in Prague received both the Creative Award and Outstanding Performer Award.

ECHOES tells the story of two British women, born 175 years apart. One, a schoolgirl jihadi; the other, a Victorian pioneer. Both venture to the East to build Empires; both meet tragedy in blood-soaked lands. Timely and relevant, ECHOES is a brutal tale of colonialism, fundamentalism and the rhyme of history.

Written by lead Spitting Image writer Henry Naylor (UK) ECHOES will make it’s Victorian premiere at Theatre Works as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival.

‘Will take your breath away… don’t miss ECHOES. An important piece of theater, wonderfully crafted and brilliantly executed.’  – Broadwayworld

‘Naylor and two beautifully nuanced performances give equal emotional weight to two disparate victims of religious colonialism in this hugely impressive play.’ – The Guardian

Presented by: Gilded Balloon in Association with Redbeard Theatre
Written by Henry Naylor // Directed by Henry Naylor and Emma Butler
Performed by Filipa Braganca and Rachel Smyth
