‘Fat Pig’ is another play about cold-hearted men from the controversial American playwright, Neil LaBute - who has just turned 50. This confrontational play, which is presented by Ali van Reeken and Benj D’Addario’s award winning production company, Red Ryder Productions, is showing in the main theatre at the Blue Room, 53 James Street, Northbridge. The 75-minute performances begin at 7.00 pm nightly until Saturday 8th June.
‘Playhouse Creatures’ is a bawdy but well-researched and beautifully scripted play, based on a 350-year tale. It was written twenty years ago by a 30-year old English dramatist, April de Angelis, and is now being brought to life by HIVE (Her Infinite Variety Ensemble) for Class Act Theatre. The play is being presented at the new Guild Studio, 123 Claisebrook Road, at the corner of Claisebrook and Somerville (near Claisebrook Train Station), East Perth.
‘Robots Vs Art’ was written by the inexhaustible Perth actor and WAAPA graduate, Travis Cotton. This hilarious play was nominated as one of the best plays of 2012. After an Equity Award for Best Newcomer, Travis went on to win many more awards with his plays and TV scripts, and has never looked back since. Multi-talented, Travis then co-wrote the musical ‘Blasted Earth’ with Tim Minchin and Toby Schmitz.
‘The Starting Stalls’ is one of half a dozen plays written by Leederville playwright, Cate Smith. Published about twenty years ago, this comedy / documentary drama was first presented at the Effie Crump Theatre and starred Kate Hall and Irene Jarzabek.
‘A Country Retreat’ is a comedy / who-dun-it from local playwright, Peter Flanigan. This pleasant little play, for all of the family, is being presented by the Stirling Theatre at Morris Place, Innaloo. The season runs until 25th May, all evening performances start at 8.00 pm, with Sunday matinees at 2.00 pm.
Sometimes friendship... is a stroke of misfortune.
