Peggy Pickit Sees the Face of God

Wednesday, 5 June 2019 to Saturday, 15 June 2019

Four friends approaching middle age, get together for the first time in six years. They want to take up their friendship where they left it, but maybe they have grown too far apart?

Old friends – all doctors – meet for dinner after six years. Liz and Frank have made their lives here in the West. They’ve done well for themselves. Carol and Martin have just returned from a six year stint in Africa. Their return seems to have been caused by a deteriorating situation which forced them to flee.

Their story is both commented on and acted out in a fascinating collage of time shifts so typical of Schimmelpfennig. Other plays JHP has staged are Arabian Night and The Golden Dragon. All these plays tease out the complex relationship between the West and other areas of the world; the Middle East, Asia and now, Africa.

"It’s only an hour long, but the personal and political are superbly blended in this play and you end up questioning your charitable impulses in the face of bitter truth. The cast are almost faultless in this."
Ewart Shaw - The Advertiser
"Peggy Pickit Sees the Face of God shows the dysfunction between the Western world and third world countries and poses moral questions. The lack of closure on the conflicts raised during the play will leave you thinking for hours after curtain call."
Josh van't Padje - Upside News
