A Stroke of Bad Luck

Teatru Malta

October 2020
The Clubrooms Misrah Santa Venera, Sta Venera Malta SVR 1682

Yes you read that right! We almost made it, but after yet another series of unfortunate events including Covid-19 which had us cancel our second programmed run of shows last April. Colin is back and ready to take the ClubHouse stage this October for one night only (fingers crossed), but that’s not it, we’ll also be streaming this performance LIVE in cinema! But more details about this to follow soon,

A refresher for all those who aren’t already aware, A Stroke of Bad Luck is a biographical piece based on the life of Colin, who suffered a stroke some years ago, after relocating to Malta. He was the high commissioner of Australia in Malta who came for work, fell in love, left his job and stayed on to continue his life passion: theatre, where he became a mainstay in local productions. This is a personal and intimate portrait of a man and his partner, seasoned actress and director Nanette Brimmer as they come to grips with their new normal.

The production also marks established theatre director and former Associate Director of the National Theatre of Scotland, Simon Sharkey’s debut in Malta as co-writer to Nanette Brimmer and director of the show.
