Rehearsed Reading Launch Night

Excellent opportunity for new members

This is the twice-yearly event to come along to if you’re interested in acting in a Rehearsed Reading (“RR”).

Directors will be revealing the pieces they’ll be presenting and recruiting cast from the attendees on the night, so come along and you should be guaranteed a part. If you can’t make it, there’s still a chance you could be cast - please simply confirm which of these dates you can commit to (and that’s all day and all evening, usually 9am-10pm) and your name will go on the reserve list, which we’ll turn to if any directors need more cast than those they have signed up from the attendees.

The Vortex

By Nöel Coward

Step into the world of glamour and intrigue as we kick off the 2024 season with Noël Coward’s timeless classic, The Vortex. Set against the backdrop of the roaring twenties, this intoxicating tale explores the complexities of love, addiction, and societal expectations, leaving audiences breathless with its sharp wit and piercing insights. Worlds collide when two decadent lives crash into each other. 

For its 100-year anniversary, Noël Coward’s career-making play is still as startling as ever. This is Punk Coward, where nothing can ever stay the same and wit and shock go hand-in-hand. Think you know Noël? Think again. ADVISORY NOTICE Contains themes of addiction and depictions of drug use

Our Country's Good

By Timberlake Wertenbaker

26 January 1788: a fleet of ships carrying convicts and colonisers arrives in Botany Bay, Australia, to establish a penal colony on stolen land.

This play tells the extraordinary true story of a group of convicts and a young officer who rehearse and perform a play – Australia's first theatrical production. With opposition from the officers and a leading lady who may be hanged, the odds are stacked against them. This is a play about love, hate, redemption, and the transformative power of the arts.

Our Country’s Good was first published in 1988 and has been a curriculum mainstay ever since for creative subjects. This fresh new take weaves storytelling and music through the much-loved words by Timberlake Wertenbaker.
