Here are some lovely comments from the audience members of our first 3 nights:

Saw it yester. Well done to all the actors and the production team especially to the leading lady and director. At times it felt like a comedy but the scares were real!”

“Watched a great thriller story, staged at MADC Clubrooms last night. We all love that element of mystery that has us jumping off our seats, it truly is one not to be missed, I highly recommend you book for next weekend if you haven’t yet …Well Done Colin Azzopardi, Steffi Thake, Joe Depasquale, Gianni Selvaggi & Becky d’Ugo!! Break legs for the rest of the run:)”

“A massive well done to Steffi Thake, Joe Depasquale and Gianni Selvaggi for their incredible performance in I’ll Be Back Before Midnight. I only watched half of it for having my hands over my eyes, and I won’t be able to sleep tonight, but that was just outstanding. So so so so proud of you all.”

MADC kicks off with its Playhouse productions at the Clubrooms in Santa Venera with a spine-chilling mixture of suspense and shocks, with just the right amount of comedy added in I’ll Be Back Before Midnight ‘written by Peter Colley and directed by Colin Azzopardi.

After several months in hospital following a nervous breakdown, Jan, Steffi Thake, is brought to an isolated farmhouse by her husband Greg, Gianni Selvaggi, ostensibly to complete her recovery. But unsettling things start to happen almost as soon as they arrive. First, Greg’s sister Laura, Becky D’Ugo, with whom he seems to have an unnaturally close relationship, arrives, much to Jan’s dismay. There is also George, Joe Depasquale, the rather strange and slightly demented old farmer who lives nearby. And then there are the flickering lights, the mysterious heartbeats, the hand in the window, the blood on the floor… A nightmare of frightening occurrences results in a thrilling and heart-stopping ending which will leave your audiences gasping!

Peter Colley’s THRILLER COMEDY has been produced in 29 countries including Munich, Germany at the famous Theatre Blutenburg where it ran for many months in a German translation, in the U.S., Ireland, Jamaica, South Africa and Australia, Nairobi, Kenya, New Zealand and a National Tour of Britain including the world famous Cambridge Footlights theatre.

I’ll Be Back Before Midnight runs for two weekends at the MADC Playhouse; 6th, 7th 8th and 13th, 14th, 15th February. Tickets at €10 for the first night and at €15 for the following performances. Doors open at 7pm.

Tickets are available online: www.madc.com.mt and bookings by phone on +356 7777 6232 This line is open between 10am and 6pm.

Next Up …

The Christmas Panto has come and gone! It was a fantastic experience working with so many new people and such talent!

Working with Malcolm Galea is always a privilege. It was my first time being directed by him and I am very grateful for the opportunity he has given me. I look forward to working with him again!

Working with Chiara, my partner in crime, was also quite the experience. Having to work so physically close to someone and to think as half of a person was quite the challenge. Being so restricted in our costume was quite challenging as well. I almost had a couple of panic attacks because of the claustrophobia, but thankfully Chiara was there to calm me down. I think we made a great team and I will miss working with her. Double Daisy

Next up I am working on a play written by Peter Colley called I’ll Be Back Before Midnight. I’ll be playing the part of Jan, a young woman who has just come out of a mental hospital after having a nervous breakdown. She moves to live in the country with her husband when strange things start to happen around her.

Our director is Colin Azzopardi and the play is being produced by the MADC. Click here for more information!

Booking for this play opens on the 12th January and will be running over 2 weekends: 06 – 08 February and 13 – 15 February. The first night is selling at a discount of €10 per ticket. All other tickets are at €15.

Hope to see you there! 🙂
