The Temperamentals

New Theatre presents THE TEMPERAMENTALS by Jon Marans at the New Theatre, Newtown.

I have been, of late, busy creating. Hence, the slow list of Diary entries.

One of these activities has been my direction of THE TEMPERAMENTALS by Jon Marans for the New Theatre as part of the Mardi Gras theatre program. The other has been work on Gao Xingjjian's wonderful play, THE OTHER SHORE, for the School of Art and Media at the University of New South Wales.

I am genuinely pleased about the experience of THE TEMPERAMENTALS and particularly proud of the work of the actors who collaborated with me on this play: Douglas Hansell, Daniel Scott, Mark Dessaix, Ben McIvor and Brett Rogers.

The production finishes on Saturday, 3rd March. I think it is worth seeing this play and especially watching these terrific actors, who, as all of us engaged on the project, have been doing it without remuneration of any kind. enjoying the practice of the craft we all have trained for.

Contact New Theatre for further information.
