Play Readings take over The Space

This February a number of local playwrights will be showcasing their work through a series of free play readings in The Space. Often the precursors to larger productions, these readings are the perfect opportunity for the playwright to engage with the audience and test their material in an intimate setting. Only a limited number of seats are available so bookings are essential. The three play readings during February are The Game, The Turn of Winston Haggle and Allen.


The Game – Sat 6 Feb

Having recently performed his cabaret Lucky Country, award-winning performer, composer, playwright, actor and singer/songwriter Bradley McCaw invites you to a free play reading of The Game, which follows two bored siblings who are sucked into a fantasy world while playing a video game. Potentially ridiculous and very funny, this is the perfect opportunity to bring the whole family together.

The Turn of Winston Haggle – Sat 13 Feb
RK Musgrave is a local writer who produces works across the creative spectrum. His work consistently delves into themes of loss, death and guilt with a dark sense of humour and irony found in the works of Roald Dahl and Chuck Palahniuk. His upcoming week-long residency in February at The Arts Centre for his one-act play, ‘The Turn of Winston Haggle’ is no exception. This sees us follow one man’s quest to develop a friendship under the most deathly of circumstances.
