Stories from the South West Premiere @ Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse
16 January 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm$10
Three local stories, three short digital plays.
Stories from the South West presented by Perth At Home Theatre Inc. is a series of locally-written plays performed in their original locations. Join a lighthouse keeper during a storm in “At the Lighthouse”; enjoy a beer with two travelling comedians in “This Way Up”; and take a journey down memory lane with “Busselton Jetty 1969”.
‘Stories from the South West’ premieres at the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse on Saturday 16th January before a screening at the Backlot Cinema in West Perth on Saturday 30th January. It will be released on YouTube later in 2021.
‘At The Lighthouse’ by Perth writer James Forte follows lighthouse keeper Henry (Thomas Dimmick) who receives an unexpected visitor in local school teacher Chloe (Michelle Ezzy) during a wild storm. Cut off from communications and with the storm closing in, Henry and Chloe must fight for survival. This one act play was filmed on location at Cape Leeuwin and was directed by Chris McRae.
‘This Way Up’ by Perth writers Luke Miller and Chris McRae is a bar set comedy which was filmed on location at the Margaret River Hotel. American comedians TJ (Sean Wcislo) and Eddie (Alan Gill) have failed on the US comedy scene and head to the South West to try their hand at local humour. What they can’t figure out is why all the towns seem to end in ‘up’. This short play was directed by Luke Miller.
‘Busselton Jetty 1969’ also written by James Forte follows Dr Amanda Kingston (Ash Jackson) as she relives her memories of summer on Busselton Jetty in 1969 with the assistance of a technology known as Nostalgia Unlimited. Young love was present in the form of young army officer Steve (Seb Kindt) and Amanda looks back on where her life has been and where it is going. This short play was filmed on location on Busselton Jetty and was directed by Chris McRae.
This session will be presented at Cape Leeuwin Café on Saturday 16 January 2021 at 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
