When A Man Loves A Woman...
Written & directed by SUE TURNER
The Arts Theatre is very pleased to begin the new year with a staged reading of a very funny,
new Australian play, written & directed by Sue Turner.
About the play
WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN... was originally written as a One Act play back in 2015 by Sue Turner and Victoria Vinson and performed at the theatre over a few nights. Since then, Sue has been working to transform it into a full-length production. Now with a wonderful dream cast on board, the play will premiere with 3 performances from 29th to 31st January.
Egotistical B-grade actor Brock Wauncock is rehearsing his new play with a cast of misfits and an inexperienced rookie director. Tensions are high as egos, script changes, prop concerns, and professional processes cause mayhem amongst the cast and crew. Will they ever get to opening night?
Friday, 29 January at 8pm
