A Theory Of Justice – The Musical! (DEM Productions)

By | Published on Friday 2 August 2013

If political philosophy sounds too taxing a subject for you, the cast of this frolicsome production make it into something much more fun. As a professor is tossed around through time, it allows the players to skid on and off stage as an array of philosopher caricatures from Socrates the puppet to Kant as a drag-queen fairy godmother. Satisfactory acting is boosted by delightfully camp dance moves, mannerisms and facial expressions along with expressive accents which make for a show scattered with audience chortles. The musical score is comprehensive and some pretty good harmonies are belted out along the way, both in rap and ballad form. Turns out politics and philosophy aren’t so Greek to me.

C, until 26 Aug, 12.15pm.
