24 FEB – 6 MAR
Original ideas and unusual quirks to make this production wonderfully different and entertaining: the actors display excellent performance and timing skills, making this yet another gem from Woodcourt’s goldmine

A truly impressive feat with an ever-evolving theatricality

‘They were eyes. I thought they were eyes. No, they were definitely eyes. In a laneway just across from me. It was really dark, so they stood out. Two yellow, glowing eyes.’ – From a short story by Kirby Medway
This is the story of a woman in a suburban park. It is a story containing a terrifying truth; monsters are real.
Conspiracy theorist Kirby Medway has spawned this narrative, an eyewitness account of a life-changing supernatural visitation. Realised by the Woodcourt Art Theatre house team of provocateurs, Encounter is an attempt to stage the impossible: a sci-fi/horror tale of which HP Lovecraft would be proud.
