2018 I did Masquerade by Aussie playwright Kate Mulvany. It was the most beautiful show I’ve ever been a part of! We discussed it as a mixture of magical realism, musical theatre and children’s theatre.
This year I’m doing The Unravelling by UK playwright Fin Kennedy. Also some super cool magical realism stuff, with slight influences of Epic theatre.

It’s an important discussion in short. Thank you, Justin. Would you give a detail list of dramas which contain magic realism?

Thanks for that Justin. We have been currently discussing Magic Realism in my Year 12 class with one of our Contemporary Australian texts we are studying – ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ by Lally Katz. Thanks for summing it up so well.
