Step 3 – Produce a Contemporary Australian Play
So, overnight I went from author to producer! Producing a play is no small feat, particularly if you have not done it before. It involves finding the right theatre, promoting, financing and overseeing every little detail, ensuring that Georgina lives again!
The number of blind alleys I was led into was incredible! Some people, “wanting to help,” told me it was impossible. They said that, because the play had never been seen, I would not find a theatre willing to take the risk.
Luckily, Jay was there to support me throughout the whole experience. He has always encouraged me, and with his knowledge of Australian plays, he has been fantastic!
Finally, we settled on the Hellenic Greek Theatre in Marrickville, where the preview of “Georgina, The Play” will be performed on 21, 22, 23 August, 2020. You can Purchase Tickets here.
The warmth, cooperation and help we received from the managers of this theatre has been outstanding. I am really looking forward to working with them. Further good news is that other theatres have also expressed an interest and want our contemporary Australian play to come to them, too. More of this later!
