Ghosts compare stars signs; a life in a share house in a bowl of spaghetti becomes dramatic; love games are played down by the train tracks; people with heads the shape of shapes have a cocktail party in the 50s; and racist pornstars look for love in all the wrong places.
5 short works by new and emerging female playwrights from around the country.
CAST: Aaron Walton, Annabel Marshall-Roth, Amy Jones, Alex McQueen, Devon Lang Wilton, Ryan Jones PHOTOGRAPHY: Eugyeene Teh and Annabelle Hale PROMO SHOT: Sarah Walker
An excerpt from GROUP SHOW:Opening Sequence and 'This Blazing Light' by Bridget Mackey.
"Without doubt, the best direction of a short-play season that I’ve seen...a world that seemed made for each of the very-different works and is so funny and fascinating that the change-over moments between each play are as good as the plays...
A reminder that short plays can, and should, be wonderful"
“The off-kilter corridor of a cheap motel, each entranceway lit up with unearthly neons…Group Show begins like an early David Lynch film, a mood of surreal suburbia and the oddities that lie behind each door uniting this showcase of five short works by emerging playwrights” – The Age
