DON JUAN IN SOHO
University of Adelaide Theatre Guild
The Little Theatre
Written By: Patrick Marber
Directed By: Megan Dansie
“He’d do it with anything … a hole in the ozone layer”.
DJ, a “true poet of the flesh”, is living it up in modern day Soho, sleeping his way through endless conquests with no thought to the consequences. He is utterly reprehensible and indefensibly filthy - “Satan in a suit from Savile Row” - and his long-suffering assistant Stan can barely keep up with covering his tracks. But by abandoning his new bride Elvira on their honeymoon, our anti-hero DJ goes too far, incurs the wrath of her brothers and is forced to confront his actions. Then all hell lets loose!
Marber’s play is overtly and unashamedly raunchy, full of foul language and frequently shocking behaviour. It’s a hilarious satire on the idiocies of our age, notably our obsession with ourselves, our expectation that every whim will be catered for and our need always to be the centre of attention.
Inspired by Molière’s 1665 comedy and written in 2006, the play was revised and updated in 2017 to include contemporary references.
"Please don't be charmed. He is not a loveable rogue. He really isn't."
Warning Message: A contemporary play containing coarse language and simulated acts of a sexual nature which some people may find confronting. For mature audiences only.
