After January PDF Print E-mail

by Philip Dean and Nick Earls

Directed by Margaret Bell

Season - 14 March – 4 April


A play about what happens when you stop waiting for life to happen and begin to live it.

 

Alex has eighteen days until he finds out if he got into Arts Law, a week in Caloundra to sleep, swim and watch the cricket, and a mother with a keen interest in his sex life.

 

Fortuna keeps bees, has a nose ring, and a father who likes to do pottery in the nude. When this unlikely pair meet the results are both hilarious and heartwarming. And for both of them it means that things will never be the same after January.

 

Adapted by Philip Dean from Nick Earls' award-winning novel, After January is a play for people of all ages about what happens when someone stops waiting for life to happen and begins instead to live it.

Love Letters by A.R. Gurney PDF Print E-mail

Directed by Gary O'Neil

by A.R. Gurney.

Features Brian Cannon and Beris Marshall

 Playing Saturday 15 and 22 November at 8pm

Love Letters is a Pulitzer Prize nominated play by A.R. Gurney. The play centers on just two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepiece Ladd III. Using the epistolary form sometimes found in novels, they sit side by side at tables and read the correspondence - in which they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats - that has passed between them throughout their separated lives. It is only at the sad ending that they realize they were really love letters all along.
