Theatre (St James Cavalier)
FOPSIM presents Moving Mountains, a new play of Vincent Vella directed by Josette Ciappara. Every year, even in countries with laws stating otherwise, parents of seriously ill children refuse medical intervention because of their religious beliefs. Moving Mountains, inspired by true events, tells of one such conflict.
Emma is a gifted and attractive sixteen-year-old who develops an aggressive condition. Her family, under the influence of Reverend Whitmore, refuses treatment. On the other side, we have Dr Paola Baldini, the hospital administrator, and Dr Nicolas Mertens, surgeon and principal driving force behind the reformed laws. A series of highly charged scenes, going right up to the strong, startling denouement, take us through the face-off between the two sides.
The play is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme through the EU collective plays project.
