SHOW OUTLINE:
BYTE’s new theatre piece will be touring in early 2019.
What country friends is this? is a new theatre piece devised by the 2019-ensemble and
Joachim Matschoss with music by young composers Tom Pitts and Olivia Smith. It features
Casey Bohan, Anna Lyons, Megan Mitchell and Olivia Smith.
What country friends is this? sees Viola (Twelfth Night’s heroine) to land in Illyria which
looks part forest of Arden, part contemporary city. Viola disguises herself to explore this
strange place and tries to find employment and bumps into Juliet (who has just met Romeo
at that infamous party). Love hits and a confused Cesario (Viola) runs away, meeting other
Shakespearian heroines along the way. The theatre piece deals with identity, relationships,
love, gender and what it means to be young in today’s times. Above all it explores
Shakespeare’s themes in a fun way. Soliloquies become songs and the audience will not
escape the magic of love.

It is presented by BYTE (BackYardTheatreEnsemble), an independent company that
produces theatre dedicated to devised issue-based work nationally and internationally for
many years.
What country friends is this? will be shown on a bare stage with an ensemble of four
actors/singers. They share their thoughts and their innermost feelings with the audience.
This is a piece of theatre that includes original songs. It part comic, moving and thought-
provoking.

What country friends is this? will premiere in Melbourne/Australia, before touring in late
February to April 2019 to HongKong, China, Thailand, Singapore, Germany, the United
Kingdom, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, the USA and the Netherlands.
Joachim Matschoss is a poet and playwright from Melbourne/Australia. He has collaborated
with Melbourne based composer Tom Pitts on many projects.
