Well known for creating unique theatre experiences in the arts and corporate sectors, Melbourne Playback Theatre Company commence their 2016 season with The F-Word; Celebrating International Women’s Day at Howler in Brunswick on Thursday 10 March.
The first in a series of Q&A Shows offered by the company in 2016, The F-Word; Celebrating International Women’s Day invites Melbourne to join a panel of some of our most prolific and respected feminists as they discuss a variety of subjects, and then watch the Melbourne Playback Theatre Company in an interactive performance.
Panelists for this evening include Tammy Anderson (Award winning Actor and Playwright); Clementine Ford (Writer and social commentator), Jane Gilmore (Editor – Women’s Agenda); and Melba Marginson (Executive Director – Victorian Immigrant and Refugee Women’s Coalition).
At the conclusion of the panel, stories and experiences from the audience (inspired by the evening’s discussions) are invited to be shared, and will then be turned into theatre by a team of highly skilled actors and musicians.
Celebrating 2016 International Women’s Day, this particular evening also boasts an all female team. From the MC, Michelle Nussey, and the panel, to the musicians, and actors behind the work that will be presented. It’s an all inclusive evening with a confident nod towards all wonderful women.
