THE PLAY

FROM PAGE TO STAGE & BEYOND!

The main focus of The Play is the rehearsal and performance of a contemporary theatre production, staged in the Darlo Drama In-house Theatre across a season of THREE performances.

Open to people who have completed Levels One, Two & Three with Darlo Drama or similar courses elsewhere, The Play gives you a fundamental understanding & experience of the processes involved in staging an entire play, from rehearsal & interpretation to performance. Working as an ensemble, blocking & script analysis is also developed in this course under the guidance of your Director.

The three performance structure of this course provides essential learning and experience around the development of your individual performance craft over multiple shows in front of audience. This course can be repeated as each new play uses different scripts, each with their unique challenges and learning opportunities.

*We endeavour to use scripts that have equal performance and learning opportunities for each student, however casting decisions are at the discretion of your Director.

FOCUS - Taking direction, structure, script analysis, the arc of the play, working as an ensemble, stage work & blocking.

OUTCOME - Three Performances to family and friends at Darlo Drama In-house Theatre

MAXIMUM STUDENTS - Varies depending on script. See individual course details.

SYNOPSIS

Hannie Rayson, one of Australia's most prolific, successful and beloved writers, has created a contemporary story about the deep friendship between three women.

Suzannah, Maggie and Janet have been colleagues and best friends for years. But their relationship is about to be severely challenged by husbands, lovers, children, work ... and a new drug! They work together, publishing a high-quality magazine, and have always helped each other to deal with life's crises. 

The magazine is preparing to print an article about Miriam Roth, a high-profile female medical researcher, who is conducting a trial of a drug for PMS. This drug may or may not be responsible for birth defects. The play considers what is moral/ethical and how modern people deal with difficult situations.

The underlying issue is not clear-cut and you are likely to change your mind, as do the play characters several times as various facts are revealed.
