The­atre chin­wag

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Arts -

PLAY­WRIGHT Peta Mur­ray will be hold­ing a talk at the Spare Parts Pup­pet The­atre next month.

Mur­ray is the adapt­ing writer of Tim Win­ton’s Blue­back and will join Spare Parts artis­tic di­rec­tor Philip Mitchell and a num­ber of per­form­ers on stage for ‘Tack­ling the D-word; ex­plor­ing emo­tional in­tel­li­gence on stage’.

The talk is part of Spare Parts’ new post-show dis­cus­sion se­ries “In Con­ver­sa­tion”.

Mitchell said it was a unique op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss Blue­back’s ma­jor themes of grief and re­silience and to learn how as a play­wright Mur­ray de­vel­oped those themes for chil­dren’s the­atre.

He said Spare Parts was ded­i­cated to sto­ries that cel­e­brated hu­man­ity.

Mur­ray will be at the Spare Parts Pup­pet The­atre on July 8 from 7.30pm. Visit www.sppt.asn.au.

Peta Mur­ray.
