The Magnolia Tree

By Michael Gray Griffith

A new Australian thriller with a twist…

Saturday 22nd May 2021 7.30pm

The Magnolia Tree

Three siblings have come together to choose a nursing home for their mother, who has advanced Alzheimer’s, but instead Jack, for unclear reasons, will attempt to talk his sisters into letting her go, tonight. Will his sisters’ principles hold up, or will the decades of poverty ahead of them force them to re-evaluate the morality their mother taught them?

The twist? The final decision won’t be theirs – it will be yours.

This play has two endings and right in the middle of its most powerful and tense moment you will have to vote for the one you want to see.

So the real question is, how robust is your morality?

Each ending leaves audiences with a different experience and adds a completely new dimension to live theatre. Most nights there have been gasps and squeals of nervous laughter as audiences realise this is the moment they must choose, with some members fixed in their choice before the play has even started while others waver throughout the play, as confused by the logic of Jack as his sisters are…

The Magnolia Tree is presented by The Wolves Theatre Company, a group of artists determined to show that mature creatives can be original, challenging and pertinent. Their focus is to write and produce bold, contemporary pieces aimed predominantly at the 45 plus demographic.

‘In a lifetime of going to see theatre I have never been as
emotionally involved in a play as I have in this one.’
John Flaus

‘Playwright Michael Griffith has written a striking character-driven play
filled with family secrets and fractured relationships,
presenting them with an impossible bind… A must see.’
Simi West (4/5 stars)
