Theatre politics would have made for a good documentary.
26 November 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

We follow the politics of the theatre when a struggling theatre company rehearses the Aeschylus' play, Seven Against Thebes. They hope to take it on the road to Sarajevo but all odds are against them. A clutter of characters prance around the screen, throwing us in every direction. It soon settles down as we grasp the geography of the character structure and feel for their passion that drives them. In the end, this would have made an interesting documentary.
