Love and fear – the two major themes that shape us while growing up – form the heart of Beast, the latest offering from The Actors’ Hub.

Directed by Ellis Pearson, the story follows the trials and tribulations of people in a rural village as they face the danger of “the beast”.

“The story of having to overcome the monster is so old in human history, and so fundamental, that the students and myself – the group provocateur – found the task of creating our own version just too irresistible,” he said. 

“We uncovered facets of love and fear that are vital ingredients in the task of facing up to the beast and, along the way, felt we came to understand our own fears, desires and loves a little more.

“The challenges in the journey of making Beast were mainly finding ways to make what is essentially an adult fairytale into a contemporary story that can be exciting to an audience well-schooled in the joys of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the Hollywood versions of Marvel comics.”

Beast plays at 7pm April 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 with a 2pm matinee also on April 6. Tickets are $30, $25 concession – book at  

The Actors’ Hub is at 129 Kensington Street, East Perth.
