This is a re-posting of my original Blog Posting Events in Theatre Australia. I have chosen to republish this under Bulletin Boards as it is the most frequently read forum.

The Actor's Pulse, founded and Directed by Billy Milionis, opened in Sydney in 1997. It is the only school in Australia to specialise in the world-renowned Meisner Acting Technique.
This is going to make me sound dreadfully naive, but here goes.
I'm an aspiring playwright doing a major in Creative Writing at Melbourne University, and last year I was commissioned to write a play for my old high school. It was a comedic mystery (or mysterious comedy), for a large cast, written with a school budget in mind. It was produced and performed with great success - we had a full house both nights, and the students really enjoyed it. The producer urged me to publish it, because she said it was better than most other school plays she had come across. Shortly after the performance, I made an entry on doolee.com, but, as I expected, nothing came out of this because it's a huge site and there are much better-established writers than me. (The school has since commissioned another play from me, this time with an offer of payment, so I must be doing something right.)
Compelling, visceral contemporary original theatre created by and for 15-26 year olds supported by professional emerging theatre designers and director at Perth City Farm might not be appealing to everybody, but it's great to see what young adults do and say when given the opportunity to be in a professionally supported production about facing an 'end of days' scenario.
