Emerald City – Grant Dodwell’s Australian National Theatre Live
Grant Dodwell’s Australian National Theatre Live brings Emerald City into cinemas.
Recently on my Gypsy Traveller Tour of Eastern Australia, I had the good fortune to be invited to the screening of Grant Dodwell’s Australian National Theatre Live production of ‘Emerald City’ in Nambour, Queensland.
Emerald City is a 1987 play by Australian playwright David Williamson, a satire about two entertainment industries: film and publishing.
“This very 1980’s social comedy — about a successful writer who moves from rainy, serious Melbourne to sunny, hedonistic Sydney and falls in love with the tantalizing appeal of a house by the water — still works.”

The Australian National Theatre Live ‘ANT’ is bringing the ‘Live’ theatre experience to a number of areas in Australia that may not have ready access to live plays at the major theatre companies.
The majority of these theatre companies are capital city based and with the vast distances that occur in Australia, ANT saw an opportunity to provide the next best thing to an actual live performance. That is to film a live performance in such a way that the audience can absorb the inclusive ambiance that live theatre creates. In other words you feel that you are part of the play and that you are actually an integral component of the ‘set’ and not simply seated as an observer.
Having experienced ‘live theatre’ on many occasions I can honestly say that this concept works! Well done Grant and the team! I wish you all every success.
So do yourself a favour, if you have the opportunity ensue that you see the Australian National Theatre Live’s film production of the Aussie classic play ‘Emerald City’ by playwright David Williamson.
