Brisbane is enduring a “low density heat wave” at the moment, which means the ceiling fans are whirring wildly, trying to shift the cool air from the air conditioners around everyone’s home, with limited success. I flew back here a couple of weeks ago as my elderly mother is unwell.
Flying back this week to Edinburgh, then down to London on Friday to undertake rehearsals for our staged reading of Fractions. Marcel has made a few revisions, tightened up the text and it flows like a dream. I am so excited to be working on this, and so looking forward to sharing it with you at the Bread & Roses Theatre. How kind they are, to support this volunteer effort of ours. Please help to spread the word.
TMT will be in London in February, as well as April, so get your diaries out and make a note!
On 14th February, we’ll present a staged reading of Marcel Dorney’s wonderful re-telling of the story of Hypatia, female philosopher and defender of the Library of Alexandria. You know the one – the bigots and the fundamentalists burnt it down, back in the day. So, not much has changed, and this is a play for our times. The play is called “Fractions” and this will be its UK Premiere.
We could do with a few more volunteer performers, this is a mission of love to encourage and inspire ourselves in these dark times.
The reading will be presented at the Bread and Roses Theatre, 68 Clapham Manor Road, London on 14th February at around 7.30 pm. Contact me if you’d like to take part. As long as you can read, you are welcome.
And then, Dame June Bloom will hit the ground running after her triumphant appearance off off Broadway (or was that off off off off…) in her hit solo show, “Yes! Because…”. Bread and Roses Theatre, as above, from 4 to 8 April, 7.30 pm.
