Breaking and Entering
Part of the Women's Theatre Festival 2020.
Readings from the Aug 22 workshop convened by Angie Farrow in August.
Curated by Kerryn Palmer.
Circa Theatre is delighted to launch the 3rd WTF! in four years! A special writing workshop convened by award-winning playwright Angie Farrow (The Blue Balloon, Toronto: Despatch, USA; Privitus, Edinburgh; Before the Birds; Leo Rising, Auckland) takes place on Saturday 22 August and October sees the NZ Premiere of Amelia Bullmore’s hilarious and moving Di and Viv and Rose (17 Oct – 7 Nov) featuring a top all-female cast.
The Festival also includes four play readings, a development season of the second part of Lynda Chanwai-Earle’s Antarctic trilogy entitled HOLE (22 -26 Sept), the return of Penny Ashton’s smash-hit-one-woman show Promise & Promiscuity (12 – 29 Nov) and Hen’s Teeth in December with The Older the Better (Sat 5 – Sun 20 Dec).
Inspired by Equal Representation for Actresses, Circa Theatre takes up the challenge of 50:50 by 2020 and examines its programming in 2018 in preparation for a Forum (date tbc). The Circa Council has equal representation of men and women and has always championed equality. We are also addressing gender diversity with the children’s show The Glitter Garden (30 Sept – 10 Oct) creating a Festival which celebrates women’s voices and opens the discussion to LGBTQI+ and the Rainbow community.
