Audition Notice

Audition details for our upcoming productions.

We have an open audition on Tuesday evening, 14th March at 7:30pm for

another Bareboards initiative - a one-off, script-in-hand performance of

David Williamson's DON PARTIES ON.

 

DON PARTIES ON was written in 2011 & is the sequel to Don's Party.

 

SYNOPSIS:

Don invites old friends around for a party the night of the federal election.

 

It’s 21st August 2010, the night of yet another federal election and, of course, yet another election night party at Don’s place. 

 

Over the decades, as he and his friends watched governments come and go, they have also closely followed the incoming results from each other’s lives: the tallies of luck and misfortune, the unexpected swings for and against. And through it all, the lesson that this crowd of superannuated Baby Boomers never seemed to learn is that politics and strong personalities should never be mixed with alcohol. 

 

The relationships between the returning characters have changed and there are also new characters: Cooley's wife Helen, Don and Kath’s son Richard, Richard's lover Roberta, and his daughter Belle.

DON - mid 60s
