You’ve been wondering where I have been? Not in the usual foyers about town… not reviewing my usual quantity of plays… I’ve been in rehearsal, production meetings, I’ve been head down/eyes on scripts for Brand Spanking New 2010.

The Blurb:
Returning for its third exciting season, New Theatre’s Brand Spanking New aims to encourage Australian writing for theatre by providing a collaborative environment to showcase the work of both emerging and established writers. Over two weeks, this curated season explores monologues, short plays, sketches and excerpts from longer pieces, penned by some of the country’s most innovative and imaginative writers and interpreted by a dedicated team of directors, designers and actors. Brand Spanking New is a not-to-be missed celebration of the best of contemporary Australian playwriting. It’s bold, it’s fearless and it’s fun!
