Play Reading

Friday Play Reading

On Friday 27 October from 9.30am – noon we will be having a lively reading romp with two short romantic plays by Anton Chekhov: The Proposal and The Bear. They are both very entertaining narratives, argued by lively and outrageously eccentric characters.

These creations from Russia early in the 1900s are strangely relevant to comedic ironies within our community today.

At Friday morning play readings, we share a tea and coffee break, with a nibble contributed by someone generous; and there is always an interesting discussion about writing for theatre through the ages. We contribute $5 each to the theatre.  For further information phone Jill Morris on 0427 624 090.

Saturday Evening Play Reading

The next Saturday play-reading is postponed by a week to Saturday the 18th of November at the Playhouse at 5.30pm. The play to be read is titled ‘Bouncers’ by John Godber. Andrew would like this play to be considered for the 2025 season.

Originally premiering at the Edinburgh Festival in 1977, Bouncers is still one of the most performed plays in the UK today and is named as one of The National Theatre’s ‘Plays of the Century’. Hilarious, vulgar, frenetic and highly physical, the play has become an international sensation, gathering awards from around the world. Often imitated but never beaten, the original Bouncers is eye- wateringly funny, celebratory, and as relevant today as it ever was. With a pumping 80’s soundtrack, this script takes us back to the glorious highs when disco was king, and everyone lived for the weekend. Like a hideously funny Saturday Night Fever, Bouncers is more a social phenomenon than a play.

There will be a charge of $5 to cover costs and we will provide the nibbles. The bar will be open for drinks. All are welcome. Please contact Andrew Robjohns on Ph: 0437671887 or email:
