Today’s Assignment: Crash Test Drama

Super excited that my new ten-minute play The Assignment will be taken for a spin at Crash Test Drama Canberra today. Not only will I get to see my script read for the first time, but I have been lucky enough to be paired up with Philip Meddows, who has kindly agreed to sit in the director’s chair. After seeing Philip’s stellar performance in Rachel Hogan’s adaptation of The Mandrake Root a few weeks back, I’m keen to see what he’ll do.

The full Crash Test line up is:

  • Cupid’s Waiting by Kate Roediger, directed by Annastasia Denton
  • My Undies Are Evil by John Lombard, directed by Arne Sjosetd
  • A Dog’s Life written and directed by Angus Algie
  • The Supermarket by C.J. Naylor, directed by Judith Peterson
  • The Experiment by Andrew Richey, directed by Lynn Petersen
  • The Assignment by Greg Gould, directed by Philip Meddows

As always, Crash Test Drama Canberra takes places at Canberra Rep’s awesome Theatre 3. Proceedings kick off at 4pm for directors and actors, with performances starting at 6pm.

If you’re an actor looking for a role, or simply want to come and check out Canberra’s newest ten-minute plays, be sure to get along. More details are available at the Crash Test facebook event page.

Stargazing at Crash Test Drama

Crash Test Drama Canberra – 1 November at Theatre 3

My newest short play, Stargazers, will be Crash Tested on 1 November by the always entertaining folks at Crash Test Drama Canberra.

Crash Test Drama is a local moved reading and networking theatre event. In a single afternoon, a bunch of new ten minute plays will be cast, rehearsed and performed script-in-hand in front of an audience. The audience then votes for their favourite play, and the judges give out awards for acting and direction.

This round, six ten-minute plays will be put through their paces, including works by Harriet Elvin, Angus Algie, Greg Burgess, Jim Jones, Kirsty Budding and … me.

Crash Test is super fun, and a great way to iron out your ten-minute play kinks. Can’t wait to see what they come up with.

Crash Test takes place on 1 November at Theatre 3. Casting and rehearsals start at 3pm. Performances start at 5. Actors and directors who want to take part should contact Budding Theatre.

If you like theatre that’s fast, fun and a little bit out of control, be there!
