This week, I had a lot of fun working with Melbourne Writer’s Theatre on a Zoom play reading.
I worked on a new short play called “The Mourners” written by Melbourne playwright Michael Olson and directed by Darren Valentine. Actually, I was able to work with one of my genuine Australian creative/acting heroes, Alec Gilbert which was honestly, a #fanboi trigger moment. I know Alec and have worked on another MWT production with him (“Beachside Stories” 2019), but this was the first time that we’ve performed a piece together. I was suitably chuffed 🙂
Melbourne Writer’s Theatre specialises in producing plays by new and emerging Melbourne writers – their work is always vibrant, quirky, refreshing and a celebration of my hometown and its beautiful people.
