This is a first for the Festival of Colour – readings of two works in progress. A unique chance to get an insight into new works at an early stage in their development. A group of local actors, directed by Conrad Newport, will read each play and afterwards we open up the floor for a Q&A session about the work. (Auditions will be held March 2nd. Contact the Festival office for more information 03 443 4172).
Dave Armstrong – Dave has brought many plays to the Festival – King and Country, Niu Sila, The Tutor, Le Sud, Rita and Douglas and this year Kings of the Gym. But Dave never stops – he has just completed a residency in Bannockburn and we will hear the first draft of his new
play, Central, set in Central Otago.
