Michael Gray Griffith has written a play that will cast your morality adrift in an exercise of humanity. If you like a solid script and want to explore the depths of your own morality – this is the play for you.Nigel Hawkins InReview Score: 7/10

Michael Gray Griffith’s The Magnolia Tree might be a theatrical murderous tale, or maybe it’s not . . . That’ll be up to you.The play is a journey into darkness, or is it light?But instead of being set on a tropical river in some far away jungle it takes place in an ordinary suburban house and involves ordinary people, Australians, us, you.

But what it also does, at one crucial moment, is hand the compass over to you and what this does is make every show special for no one knows, until the end, what the end of the play will be.But be warned 48% of the time the audience votes for MURDER.Brilliantly written it is completely gripping, often funny, heartfelt and yet it can be seriously chilling. The cast consists of two St Kilda residents Tottie Goldsmith and Ezra Bix, and also stars Rohana Hayes one of the founders of the dynamic The Wolves Theatre Company.This year Bruce Beresford will direct a Wolves play.Here, Ezra Bix, who plays Jack talks about The Magnolia treeThe script is seriously good and riveted me from the first scene. It's theatrical dynamite – psychologically fascinating characters, with a deeply engrossing and relevant story which makes for a highly captivating and entertaining night in the theatre. The play is very honest, topical and funny. It will definitely have an affect on people.The story poses big questions relevant to all of us. It really gets people thinking, discussing and debating for a long time after the final curtain – much more than any other play I’ve been involved in, over many decades in professional theatre. And isn’t that what good drama should always do? I find Jack an extremely intriguing, human, flawed, selfish, compassionate, charming man – it will be fascinating to see how audiences react to him. The dynamics between the three characters creates a gripping, tightrope tension to the whole play.

ReviewsGriffith crafts an ingenious script that shocks and confounds. We’re privy to family secrets; confessions and personal boundaries are crossed.
