Fresh Talent. New Voices. Unseen Stories.
Emerging writer, Sam Brooks, wants to take you on a journey of Fresh Talent, New Voices and Unseen Stories in his debut shows, Goddess and Mab's Room. Brookswon the Playwrights b4 25 Award with the script for Mab's Room, and this talented young playwright presents the double-bill production at The Basement Studio.
These two dynamic stories delve into places that society often forgets. Taofia Pelesasa, Elyse Brock and Amanda Tito star in the darkly comic story of Goddess. While visually enchanting and contextually insightful, Goddess explores the idiosyncratic friendship between two people; blurring the lines between memory and reality.
Mab's Room is a heartbreakingly honest coming-of-age story, about two people navigating through their own experiences and mistakes, and learning from each other in a whole new way. Luke Wilson and Steven Chudley bring the words of this award-winning script to life, in a charming and witty performance.
The double-bill will aptly be performed at The Basement Studio, where emerging talent flourishes, from 4th – 8th September.
4th – 8th September 2012, 7pm
