Play Club: The Turquoise Elephant by Stephen Carleton
Tuesday 23 June, 7.30pm
Via Zoom webinar
Tickets: Free, bookings required
Queensland Theatre’s Play Club continues with the live reading of The Turquoise Elephant by Stephen Carleton (Bastard Territory) over Zoom webinar, a “shockingly black, black, black political farce” that is “urgent, contemporary and perilously close to being real”. Stage stars Violette Ayad, Nicole Hoskins, Thomas Larkin, Barb Lowing, Brian Lucas and Andrea Moor will take the lead under the direction of Daniel Evans (Oedipus Doesn’t Live Here Anymore).
With a commitment from Queensland Theatre Artistic Director Lee Lewis to focus on Australian playwrights and actors, Play Club has been a major hit, drawing an audience from across Australia and beyond.
“We believe theatre should be open, even when it’s closed, and so Queensland Theatre is celebrating theatre digitally,” said Lewis. “Through our Quality Time with QT program we are inviting our supporters to join us behind the scenes for play readings with some of your favourite actors, conversations with creatives, practical production tutorials and a celebration of 50 seasons of stories. Together, let’s share our love of theatre by shifting our conversations from crowded foyers into our homes.”
