Winter's Discontent

By William Zappa

Revealing, funny and moving, Winter’s Discontent is a theatrical tour de force from one of Australia’s finest actors.

Best known for his award winning work with Bell Shakespeare, STC and Ensemble Theatre, William Zappa wrote and first performed Winter’s Discontent inspired by his role as Thenardier in Les Miserables.

In a dressing room backstage of a run down theatre, sits Robert Winter. He is on an interminable tour of the one man show, Eleven Episodes from the Torture, Trial and Execution of Monsieur Thenardier, based on the villain from Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. With only his stage manager, Mo, for company, the line between reality and play-acting becomes blurred as Winter struggles to believe in his life and to live up to his theatrical creed ‘the show must go on’.

Presented in partnership with Alinta Productions
