CREATIVE CUTS - Drama drawcard in Maleny

Maleny is becoming a drawcard for live theatre. Recently Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado delighted audiences at the Community Centre. Meanwhile the Maleny Players are going from strength to strength in their comfortable, intimate theatre located in the Showgrounds.

The next production, Home Truths, is a suite of one-act plays showcasing the talents of a large cast drawn from across the region. It follows a string of varied productions such as The Real Inspector Hound, Dancing at Lughnasa and The Shakespeare Project, which have played to full houses across two weekends. Later this year Kathryn Barnes will direct Ibsen’s classic Hedda Gabler at the Playhouse.

With its mix of thoughtful perspectives on present-day life in Australia, Home Truths should have broad appeal. Each of the Saturday and Sunday performances will be matinees. A trip to Maleny for lunch followed by fine entertainment—what could be better for a winter afternoon?

Pictures are three actors in Home Truths (L to R), Claire Watkins, Shelley Love, Brendan O’Shea looking at photos of past Players’ productions.
