Flying Penguin Productions is a critically acclaimed and multi award winning SA theatre company that enjoys a reputation as one of the state’s most significant and sustained independent companies.

In 2021 the Company will present two outstanding, internationally renowned works – Sea Wall and Glengarry Glen Ross.

Sea Wall is a breathtaking modern tragedy about the sudden death of a child and a father’s impossible task of confronting and understanding this cataclysmic event. Sea Wall, like all great tragedies, is contemporary and urgent, not because it explores zeitgeist issues of the day but rather because of its exploration of eternal themes.

David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Glengarry Glen Ross, enjoys an unrivalled critical pedigree, an urgent thematic concern (the death and illusory nature of capitalism) and is rightly regarded as one of the great ensemble works ever written for the stage – an actors’ loved favourite.

The program of activities promises to provide South Australian artists and audiences with an important opportunity to engage with two unique leading theatre works from the International repertoire.

The Company has drawn together a stellar team of artists to bring these works to the stage. Your donation will assist in providing this outstanding team with the resources needed to make and present engaging, challenging and memorable theatre.
