One week out from opening night and the buzz about the STC and Malthouse Theatre’s newest collaboration, Baal, is already building, thanks in no small part to its warnings of on-stage nudity, graphic sex scenes and violence. One of Bertolt Brecht’s least-performed works, Baal is the story of the title character, a monster of appetite who cruelly uses, abuses and discards friends, patrons and lovers of both sexes, leaving a trail of devastation in his wake. It opens on May 11 at the Sydney Theatre Company.
