This is your chance to engage intellectually about theatre
Innovative theatre companies Black Swan State Theatre and Blue Room Theatre are constantly seeking ways to bring new and fresh approaches to the stage to local actors, directors and playwrights.

The new joint venture, called simply the Good Play Club, invites Perth theatre makers, both amateur and professional to meet together and be exposed to the greatest plays in the English language.

Once every two weeks a play selected from the annals of great theatre will be read at at the club, followed by a facilitated discussion by Black Swan Associate Director Jeffrey Jay Fowler and an invited guest artist.

Their mission statement: 'We seek to foster conversation among the artists of Perth about the origins of our art form, and how it has led to contemporary practice.'

The year's programme began on Tuesday 22nd March with plays from Ancient Greece with a focus on Oedipus Rex . The guest artist for the first session was theatre maker and member of Black Swan's Emerging Writer's Group Finn O'Branagáin (The Epic, The Crossing).

Future meetings will take place at 6pm at The Blue Room Theatre. Places are limited for this free fortnightly event, so a booking is essential email:

Wine will be provided by Willoughby Park. For further information contact The Blue Room on 9227 7005.
