This event will involve a first read through of the play that will function as an informal audition for the moved reading which will take place on 20 June. The reading itself will be a fun and relaxed exploration of the text, characters, and some important themes, as well as an opportunity to perform at the New Fortune Theatre.

This will be the first moved reading in the New Fortune Theatre Project organised by the Graduate Dramatic Society of Western Australia (GRADS), which aims to develop a vibrant community of artist practitioners and academics that can begin to more fully realise the New Fortune Theatre as a performance, laboratory and research space.
