ME: I am a Melbourne-based playwright, filmmaker, director and actor. I spent my university years (2013-2018) writing and acting, and am enrolled in the Masters of Theatre Writing at Unimelb/VCA next year.
BACKSTORY: I answered a callout from the Butterfly Club in late 2019 to pitch a play concept and said to myself I would write it if I got accepted. I did and so it was written.
Then Covid shut everything down. It is set for sometime after April - an exact date is still to be determined given the current Covid resurgence.
PLAY: It is a fairytale-esque take on Scott Morrison's handling of the bushfires in late 2019. It is about a young queen-to-be who believes that God has incarnated himself into a lump of coal and their wedding is set. Her advisor is worried and a French knight has come to vie for her hand in marriage. Who will she choose?
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesTo be determined but between April-July
Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - Happy to discuss a paid rate, but The Butterfly Club is offering a profit share and between 3 cast members (1 is me), you and the tech assistant, if we sell out shows it will come at a profit.
Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.
Anyone, aged 18 and over
- Directing & Writing ability: Intermediate, Expert
