Jekyll and Hyde

Few stories have the kind of resonance in different contexts as Robert Louis Stevenson’s tale of moral inconsistency and rival influence.

Saigon Players: Ten Years and Counting

The Saigon Players

A decade ago, there was no such thing as English-language theatre in Ho Chi Minh City — that is until a small group of foreign thespians, bent on creating an outlet for the theatrically inclined, decided to change that. Alison Bredin, Ann Walkin, Joe Springer-Miller, Frank Christensen, Ro Verdeja and David Hope all joined forces to bring to life a new opportunity in the urban metropolis. The Saigon Players community theatre was born in 2003, performing their first production A Dog’s Life the following year to an enthusiastic audience of expats and locals alike.

The Show Must Go On

Dragonfly Theatre

We’re in Q4, a massive warehouse-cum-event space that will be the eventual setting of the production’s opening night. Right now, though, it is littered with stools, plush armchairs and wobbly sofas that Aaron is shoving across the uneven asphalt floor to create a makeshift stage. He takes a few steps back to survey his work, pausing to contemplate, and then begins approximating the stage dimensions by striding around the room in long, even steps, counting as he goes.
