Nine actors, 46 characters and one boys’ fight all add up to The Actors’ Hub’s latest show at the Subiaco Arts Centre.

Written by Lewis John Carlino and directed by Adam Mitchell, The Brick and The Rose is set in the 1950s and follows the story of one boy from his birth in the Bronx to his untimely death.

In a time of hope for many immigrants and first generation New Yorkers, it’s supposed to be the start of something better – but the city has a secret.

Drug addiction, prostitution, poverty and gang warfare form an underworld of sleaze and violence, enticing many hopefuls before slowly dragging them under.

The Brick and The Rose introduces 46 characters who live in the shadow of the city – workers, immigrants, teachers and drug lords – and races through 20 years in the life of Tommy De Santo in just under an hour.

The Brick and The Rose plays at 7.30pm November 24, 25 and 26. Tickets are $30, $25 concession – book at www.ticketek.com.au.

The Subiaco Arts Centre is at 180 Hamersley Road, Subiaco. For more details, go to http://actorshubperth.com.au/productions
