Tabula Rasa was a great success at its rehearsed reading in May with 100% of audiences giving it 9 or 10 out of 10 for enjoyment with 100% of audience feedback forms saying they would recommend it to friends and want to see a full production. The script has gone back to the playwright for a new draft when she can fit it in her busy schedule, and we aim to move on funding for a full production in 2014.
Before that, focus is on pre-production and fund raising for ‘Shrinks’ a witty comedy by Award winning Australian playwright Timothy Daly; – who is this years recipient of the prestigious Keysing Award in Paris where his plays are being translated and performed in French. This work ‘Shrinks’ is his latest play and is a light hearted entertaining evening at the theatre. It will be produced by Purple Pear Productions and Monette Lee, Directed by the multi award winning director Michael Futcher and starring Hugh Parker, Monette Lee and Luke Townson. This production is anticipated to open as a world premiere at the Gold Coast Arts Centre in 2014 and go on to Brisbane for a short season.
