father, leading to a devastating outcome.

Bali: The Sacrifice
23rd & 24th November

Based on a 10th century myth, Girish Karnad’s Bali: The Sacrifice examines the complexity of
relationships and the concepts of violence and sacrifice. A king is distressed to discover that his queen
has been unfaithful. To avoid further evil, he is called upon to make a sacrifice, but his religion does not
allow violence. In desperation, he substitutes a bird made of dough, with shocking results. Bali: The
Sacrifice questions the justification of violence in the name of religion, tradition and culture.

28th & 29th November
8:00 pm to 9:30 pm
A play about paranoia, conspiracy theories, love and madness. Agnes, a waitress who is in hiding from
her violent husband, is introduced to Peter. Peter grows increasingly paranoid about the war in Iraq,
UFOs, and secret government experiments on soldiers, and pulls Agnes into his delusions. Under his
influence, Agnes slowly descends into insanity.

No Question
30th November & 1st December
8:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Eight candidates for a highly desirable corporate job are locked in an exam room and given a final test
with just one question. It seems simple enough at first, but things rapidly spiral out of control. No
Question is a suspense-filled thriller.
