What is Playtime?
Playtime is an initiative of The Wall with Actors Anonymous, a collaboration of some of Australia’s finest theatrical talent has produced a brand new format for presenting theatre in Sydney. A selection of short plays that are pre-rehearsed with directors, then read by trained actors to an audience in the fully licensed World Bar Club Room.
For more information about Playtime visit their Facebook page.
Playtime 5 took place last night, with one of my plays in it, "What if it's bad news?"
Here was the full programme:
