PLAY READING

 

SATURDAY  EVENING

The July Saturday evening Play Reading has been cancelled.   We look forward to seeing you at the next Saturday play reading  on the 14th of August.

FRIDAY MORNING

The next Friday morning ‘Coffee & Cake’ Play Reading for those who cannot come at night or would rather come out during day light hours, will be held on Friday the 30 July  9.30am to 12.00pm at the Playhouse Maleny Showground.

We will be reading one- act plays by Jill Shearer, a high-flying but modest Brisbane playwright who wrote plays, stories and poetry from 1972 until her death in 2012. Jill’s short plays won many prizes, mostly performed by Brisbane Repertory Theatre at La Boite. Her full-length play Shimada was performed on Broadway! 

A clutch of Jill’s plays have come to us as a special legacy via sources who treasured them as historical Brisbane theatre archives. Gently photocopied by Andrew Powell’s office, they will be available for us to explore the (some very Queensland) issues of their time.

For further information phone Jill Morris on 0427 624 090.
