New Show – Front Row Follies

follies

 

From enthralling comedy and musical performances to World War II romance, Front Row Follies kicks off 2014 with a night of theatre to be seen by all and to be missed by none.
With help from our musical guests EnChord, we will present to you four short plays, written, directed and performed by local Brisbane talent, each ready to take you on a journey through the different genres and styles of theatre.

Les Anglais (The English)
Playwright: Mitch Broom
Director: Gene Smith

It’s the year 1940, and World War II has spread throughout the globe. William and Genevieve find themselves evacuated to the British countryside, and though they are safe from the war, they are not safe from the feelings they begin to develop for each other.


YOU START HERE
Playwright: Vivien Whittle
Directors: Mirjana Ristevski, Michael McNally, Crystal Arons

Life seems sweet until you realise everyone’s into boys except you and no- one else loves Xena: Warrior Princess… A one-woman show about how liberating life can be if you have the courage to let it.


SURPRISE
Playwright: Julie Bray
Director: Gene Smith

Marlene is spending the early hours of her 30th birthday cleaning a theatre with her colleague, Audrey. Marlene doesn’t have any extravagant plans for her special day, however Audrey does…


TUESDAYS ARE FOR BILL
Playwright: Paul Hannah
Director: Gene Smith

It’s a bright and chirpy Tuesday morning at the cemetery when long-time widow June and newly widowed Mandy meet for the first time. As they talk about their lives and tribulations, a friendship begins to form. Meanwhile, the ghosts of their late husbands get up to some mischief of their own.
