Exciting international writing project brings us stories of war!
Emma Gibson in Australia and Rob Johnston in UK have been working together over the past few weeks to create a new piece of theatre for this year’s 24:7. ‘War Stories’ takes as its theme the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War 1, and explores the different sides of the war and the impact it had on both Great Britain and Australia.
This especially commissioned play will be directed by Ben Power, and will have 2 performances during Festival week – Tuesday 22nd at 7.30pm and Wednesday 23rd at 2pm. The latter show will be followed by a Q&A with the writers, director and cast, discussing the whole process.
With a casting call about to go out, plus creative meetings between director and set/sound designers, you can follow more about the process with the latest blog/vlog HERE.
