THE DREAMING HILL
Written by Hellie Turner, World Premier Production.
Directed by Renato Fabretti, Artistic Director of the WA Youth Theatre Company.
Presented by WA Youth Theatre (Perth) and Southern Edge Arts (Albany)
Synopsis: ANZAC project set on the Greek island of Lemnos, mid-Gallipoli campaign, just prior to the ANZAC contigent landing. It captures the carefree innocence of Aussie soldiers and Nurses pressed against the swiftly encraoching shadow of the horrors of war that creep toward them from the horizon. The play transports us between our now and their then asking the question - would we be willing to sacrifice our youth now with the history that we know now?
Performance Dates: Perth WA Museum 15 - 21 April, Albany Museum 23 - 27 April
Rehearsals: Feb - April 2015
Performers and crew will consist of both WA Youth Theatre Company and Southern Edge Arts members.
More information will be provided on the day and as the project progresses. Scripts will be distributed prior to the first rehearsal.
