Glimpse of the future with Playlovers
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 email@example.com.
