After being longlisted for this year’s Pint Sized Play Competition in the UK, my short play The Truth about Mum and Dad will be popping up in a few Aussie-based festivals in the next couple of months.
First it will be seen at Short+Sweet Brisbane from July 9 – 11 at the Brisbane Powerhouse. It will be directed by Shae Riches and will feature Ben Knapton as Jason and Samantha Sherrin as Rachael. Check out the awesome poster!
About a month later it will be performed as part of Short+Sweet Canberra on August 4 – 7 at the Courtyard Theatre. This rendition will be directed by Greg Gould and will feature Brendan Kelly as Jason and Jess Waterhouse as Rachael.
Here’s the play’s synopsis:
Rachael is shocked to find her father’s car parked outside a brothel. But when she calls her brother Jason for support, she discovers there is a lot more to mum and dad’s sex life than she ever wanted to know.
If you’re in Canberra or Brisbane, be sure to check it out!
