Thunder’s Mouth Theatre presents a staged reading of Australian playwright Marcel Dorney’s award-winning play on Tuesday 14th February.
Fractions is the story of female philosopher Hypatia, defender of knowledge at the Library of Alexandria in 410 A.D., against overwhelming bigotry and ignorance - a parable for our dark modern times.
“At its core, it’s the story of the struggle for science and philosophy to survive in spite of spirituality or, more broadly, the battle of education versus ignorance.” - ArtsHub
“So little seems to have changed since the fifth century. Science versus faith, women's place in the public sphere, the role of religion in government are all matters that loom large in today's world. One obvious parallel is that of the early church with today's fanatic religious movements - the intolerance of dissent, the enthusiasm for violence, the obsession with subjugating women.” - Courier Mail.
If anyone wants to hold a (metaphorical) candle in this dramatic vigil and is available to participate in the reading on Valentine's Day, please contact Flloyd Kennedy at TMT for more details.
