Melancholia (Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne)

BY LARS VON TRIER

On the night of her boisterous wedding—amid corsages, canapés and Clicquot—Justine quietly falls apart. The world will surely follow suit.

Justine’s sister Claire stages a lavish wedding party at a mansion in the mountains, and as the fever dream of the wedding ceremony careens towards disaster, Justine is drawn to an innocuous spot in the sky. That spot is the wayward planet Melancholia, on a collision course with Earth.

This epic cinematic masterpiece is reimagined for the stage by groundbreaking playwright Declan Greene and directed by Matthew Lutton, featuring an extraordinary ensemble of performers.
