SPOKE Breaks a leg
“SPOKE” breaks a leg!
FRI. 25 FEB. 2011 @ 4.30 – 6.30 pm
You rarely hear from people who write for the stage at ‘writers’ festivals or events’. Usually you hear from playwrights at theatre subscriber-only events or indirectly from the Director at a post-show matinee Q&A.
“SPOKE” pokes a big hole in that velvet veil and showcases those who work with the page for the stage!
We invite you to hurdle the velvet rope with MC Rob De Kok and sneak a peek at the writing palettes of Rosalba Clemente, Chris Tugwell and Edwin Kemp-Attrill, with each served by an entrée of performance.
The playbill:
4.30pm Youth theatre devised performance
Edwin Kemp-Attrill on the couch with Rob
5pm ‘X-Ray’ by Chris Tugwell - excerpt performance
Chris Tugwell on the couch with Rob
6pm ‘Archipelago’ by Mich?le Saint-Yves* – excerpt performance
Rosalba Clemente on the couch with Rob
6.30-7pm Panel discussion and audience Q&A

Rob De Kok is a “SPOKE” Committee member and noted director and writer for screen and stage.
Edwin Kemp-Attrill is Artistic Director of ActNow Theatre for Social Change and works with Urban Youth and Vitalstatistix theatre companies.
Chris Tugwell is a Prof Writ. Program lecturer. His play ‘X-Ray’ about David Hicks in Guantanemo was the “sensation” of Fringe 2004 and its ABC radio adaptation was awarded the Bronze Medal for Best Drama Special at the New York Festivals’ 2006 International Radio Awards.
Rosalba Clemente mentors a current Prof Writ. Student (Michele, whose WIP play will be featured). Having established a very successful career as an actor and theatre director, Rosalba is an emerging playwright with a play currently being developed through Playwriting Australia. Her first play ‘Helly’s Magic Cup’ won the Rodney Seaborn Award in 2007.
