I am desperately looking for an amateur workshop/class (weekly, regular, on going, not a one off full time intensive thing) OR an amateur group to learn with to attend in Perth region.
I am not a pro, not at uni, not a kid (33yo professional), and I *miss* acting class, which I used to attend whilst living in London.

‘Death in Bowengabbie’ is from the pen of 35-year-old playwright, Caleb Lewis, winner of many of Australia’s most prestigious literary awards. A fact that is not too surprising when you learn that Nick Enright (who died at the early age of 52) and Edward Albee – still going at 85 - both mentored him. Caleb has had several commissions for Bell Shakespeare, Black Swan State Theatre Company and the State Theatre Company of South Australia.
A play rehearsal is interrupted by the arrival of a divided family who have been abandoned by their creator and are seeking an author, ‘any author’, to give them a ‘definitive artistic form’ so their stories may be staged. While the first performance of Luigi Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author to a Rome audience in May 1921 was almost booed off the stage it has gone on to have many successful seasons and is still a major part of the theatrical repertoire. The play, in part, is Pirandello’s attack on the Italian theatre of the time, with its actor-managers and star-systems, its stock characterisations, and its standard repertoire of romantic melodramas. However, it is a play on many levels. It raises questions about the nature of reality, of what constitutes identity, and how we can gauge what is truth. On another level it is a hysterical romantic melodrama about a warring family who live out their emotions on the skin. And, it is also a deeply tragic revenge narrative – a tale of betrayal, adultery, suicide and death. Students enrolled in theatre studies at UWA present this very physical, at times comedic, and often provocatively philosophical play, virtually uncut and unlike many productions we choose not to attempt to modernise it into the contemporary world of electronic media.

At times sad, but frequently witty, this show could just as easily be titled " G & S - all the best bits"
