Turquoise Theatre is an independent theatre company, headed by Artistic Director and Producer Susannah Thompson, that launched in 2014. Turquoise Theatre focuses on promoting the work of Australian practitioners to participate in its projects. Mounting the work of award-winning writer Lachlan Philpott, who has co-written Lake Disappointment with Luke Mullins, provides the opportunity to present a work originally commissioned by Bell Shakespeare.
Lake Disappointment explores the tragi-comic character within the framework of double identity. Informed by Twelfth Night we experience a contemporary exploration of what happens when we don’t know who or where we are anymore. Turquoise Theatre focuses on the encouragement of diversity and equality within its framework.
