South-West Shorts 2019
July 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20
Six original short plays from WA writers, performed for the first time
Join us for a delightful evening of local short plays written by some of our region’s finest storytellers.
Playwrights from Perth and the South-West were invited to write an original short play about life in WA to the theme of Changing Landscapes.
Six plays were chosen as finalists and will be performed by local actors.
The plays are being presented as rehearsed readings and full performances, reflecting the development process of getting a play to the stage. You will be taking part in the perfecting of these plays by being in the audience and will also have opportunity to give the valuable feedback writers need to further develop their work, giving you a rare opportunity to contribute to as well as enjoy original West Australian work.
