The best thing about writing short plays is that they can pop up in all sorts of places, so I was delighted that Ally Cat Productions asked me to contribute to L’amour et la mort – Love and death in a French Restaurant.
L’amour et la mort will take place at Le Tres Bon, the Canberra region’s most celebrated French restaurant, on October 14 and 21 from 7pm. It will feature a degustation menu of monologues, short plays and songs about brief, ironic but life-changing encounters in restaurants, cafes and bars.
Two of my short plays, Last Drinks and Limbo, will be on show, as well as a number of short monologues written by fellow Canberra writer/actor/producer, Judith Peterson. Rounding out the show will be the musical talents of Frank Zappia.
The plays will be performed by some of Canberra’s finest actors including Nick Steain, Helen Way, Peter Fock, and Judith Peterson. The evening will be directed by Rachel Hogan.
Tickets are $85 per person and include a three course dinner and the show. For more information, or to book, go to the Le Tres Bon website.
Get ya French on!
