This Australian epic and ideological tale of the girl from the bush who makes good as a world renowned writer is NOT a love story. This production is hot on the heels of the staged, development reading held in 2019 to a full stage production in 2020. With support from the City of Greater Geelong this story enthralls with an adventure into the outback of Australia during 1901, with all its beauty, hardship, love and loss. Written by Stella Miles Franklin, Adapted and Directed by Christine Davey

Loves Labour’s Won – October 2020
Loves Labour’s Won remains a secret piece of Shakespeare’s plays. Listed to have been performed in 1598. However, there is no play with that title that we know of as published today. The theory is that “Love’s Labour’s Won” is the early title of a play that we now know by another name. Because many of Shakespeare’s plays had not been published by 1598, there are only a few plays that could have been known by this early title. Different scholars have suggested “Much Ado about Nothing” as the modern identity of the missing “Won.” Set at the closing of World War 1, there is ‘everything’ to be ado about in this production. A sparkling, engaging and heartwarming comedy staged with modernised and acute understanding of the genre to ensure that loves labour’s are won indeed!
Production days are October 2020 with casting auditions March/April 2020, Directed by Emma Watson
