5 Plays

Act of Will a Shakespearean an Improvisational theatre piece by the amazing Helen Way, a piece about how women were treated by the theatre and society and presented in her own hilarious way.

A Modern Tragedy by Judith Peterson. In this physical comedy farce Romeo and Juliet escape the expected tragic ending and marry.  Well, they don’t escape tragedy as it emerges due to how we have developed into a selfish society thinking it’s all about us.

Bad Eggs written by Judith Peterson. Everyone has been swooped by a magpie but there are not all bad it takes one bad egg to spoil it for all. This piece is about the secret life of the magpies and how they are mischievous and love a laugh; one magpie is amusing the whole street by taking a precious ring from a human.  They just swoop people for the fun of it until Killer comes into the street and is terrorizing the humans and magpies with his viciousness. “I watched magpies for about a year until I wrote this piece they are amazing birds so intelligent – it’s like they are talking to you if you talk to them” Judith Peterson. Bad Eggs is a take on our workplaces and society – one bad egg can make everyone have a bad name.

Angel of Sympathy by Rachel Hogan is a satirical piece about the funeral industry. Is there really such a thing as a speed burial? And how can you distinguish between the incline of respect and the angle of sympathy?

Into the Sun. Two people have lived their lives for others and what is expected but they are trying to break out and do what they want for a change. But they meet resistance – will they have their dreams and get on their “boat” and travel into the sun? The writer Judith Peterson has some advice, “This is a little bit of me in there as I formed the production company in my 40’s. My advice is follow your dreams.”
