Glimpse of the fu­ture with Playlovers

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Theatre -

PLAYLOVERS will present a one­act sea­son of three very dif­fer­ent plays per­formed by young ac­tors at Hack­ett Hall in Floreat from Septem­ber 9 to 11.

The Floreat theatre com­pany has cho­sen Early Man by Han­nah Vin­cent, Wil­liam Saroyan’s Hello Out There and Lit­tle Brother, Lit­tle Sis­ter by David Camp­ton.

Early Man fol­lows the story of a school ex­cur­sion to a mu­seum and will be di­rected by Kim­ber­ley Shaw.

“Most of the stu­dents are more wor­ried about hav­ing a good time or flirt­ing with each other than com­plet­ing the re­quired work,” Shaw said.

“But Sam dis­cov­ers some­thing com­pletely un­ex­pected: a 2000-year-old Bog Boy with a story to tell.”

Sharon Greenock has di­rected Hello Out There, which is set in a Texas jail dur­ing the early 1940s and is a love story be­tween an in­mate and the shy jail cook.

“It’s a chal­lenge and yet a great op­por­tu­nity for young ac­tors to por­tray a big story in such a short amount of time,” Greenock said.

Lit­tle Brother, Lit­tle Sis­ter rounds out the trio of one-act plays, di­rected by Shaw, who said it was like “Hansel and Gre­tel stuck in a nu­clear fall-out shelter with a dod­dery, sadis­tic witch of a cook”.

One Act Sea­son is on Fri­day, Septem­ber 9 and Sat­ur­day, Septem­ber 10 at 8pm and Sun­day, Septem­ber 11 at 2pm. Book­ings at www.playlovers.org.au or by email­ing book­ings@playlovers.org.au.
