Class – By Iseult Golden & David Horan

Taking place at the brand new ‘Theatre Next Door’, ‘Class’ is FM Theatre’s latest production, and one of the first-ever to be staged at the venue. Featuring some of the best talent the island has to offer and a poignant script that premiered at the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh in 2018, this show is not to be missed.

What’s the play about, you ask? Well, Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old, and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, and never liked teachers either. So are they going to trust this one? And should they?

Inspired by the solitude widely experienced in the early days of the pandemic, ‘Sea, Sunset, Moon’ is a collaborative exhibition curated by Gabriel Zammit and featuring some of Malta’s leading talent in the visual arts.

Othello by William Shakespeare

This dynamic new interpretation of Othello from director Ian Moore will combine contemporary staging with a faithful rendering of the text. By placing the villainous Iago centre stage, this production promises to probe our capacity for petty jealousies and revenge. It explores the notion of Othello as a mercenary, rising to the top against the odds, and allows us to revel in the sheer wickedness of Iago’s manipulations. Starring Shawn John as Othello and Edward Caruana Galizia as Iago.

Ġiraffa Ħarbet minn Kastilja

Directed by Spazju Kreattiv’s very own Daniel Azzopardi (who you may recognise from local TV series including L-Gharusa and Strada Stretta), comes this original piece of work written by Aleks Farrugia. With a cast featuring the likes of Peter Galea and Antonella Axisa in, what seems to be a pretty unique plot, we’re curious to see what this play has in store.

Blurb: “After 250 years, the Maltese public is still awaiting justice. An important treasure was stolen and is expected to be returned to the Maltese islands. The Prime Minister is a bundle of nerves until the Minister of Foreign Affairs returns with this precious object.” – Interesting indeed.
