2018 Update!

Dear fellow theatre enthusiasts and followers of Guanabana Productions,

We are pleased to inform you of some new developments in the organization as of the start of 2018. Co-founder Dan and I have been dormant for a while owing to family and work commitments, but we’re jumping back on the horse this coming year.

With a new production in the autumn, as well as workshops and play-readings planned (keep your calendars open in February) we think 2018 is going to be great year, and we’d like you to be a part of it all. For a nominal membership fee, members of Guanabana Productions would be able to take part in the activities, get the inside track on auditions and available production roles as well as getting discounts on tickets. By association, you would also be a member of Malmö AmatörteaterForum (MAF).

So, if you love theatre with an English twist and you’d like to join our organization then send me an email at fraser@guanabana.se . Tell us a little about yourself, your theatre background and what you’re interested in doing with us and we’ll sort out your membership! We’re really looking forward to this next chapter of Guanabana Productions and hope you want to join us on this ride.

Yours humbly,

Fraser MacLeod (President of Guanabana Productions)

The Pavilion

by Craig Wright

The Pavilion by Craig Wright is a play about time, forgiveness and the ability, or inability, for people to change. It’s a play that begins with the creation of the universe and ends with a rebirth for two people: a new start of a new universe, or a new beginning in an old one.

We get to follow Peter and Kari: “the cutest senior couple” of Pine City’s graduating class of 1996, as they navigate through their high school 20 year reunion and their first meeting after being apart since graduation. One of them: stuck where they broke off 20 years ago, the other: looking for a new future.

Varför ska jag lära mig det här?
by Paula Brante

We meet and follow three protagonists from daycare to middle age, and see how expectations and norms regarding gender affect them and steers their lives in different directions. With a large portion of humour and a brechtian approach this play wants to put you as a youth, parent or adult against the wall and ask you; What power do you have in yours and others lives, and what do you do with it?
