Script in Hand - MTC launches play reading series
— 10th February 2014 —
I went along to the launch of MTC's Cybec Electric last week. What a great initiative. A packed house, all waiting to see the latest Australian work coming to life in the skilled hands of actors and directors. Conversation and champagne flowed afterwards. It's worth booking the dates into your diary and getting there.
Here's an excerpt from my article for Aussie Theatre:
"They’ve done it again! Melbourne Theatre Company is throwing open its doors for a brand-new play reading series called Cybec Electric. Launching tonight and running for the month of February in The Lawler, Southbank, this exciting new initiative will feature semi-staged readings of works from five hot playwrights.
Brought to life by teams of talented actors and directors, the Cybec Electric program will give audiences a glimpse of new Australian works that could very well end up on the MTC mainstage in years to come.
If you’ve never seen a semi-staged play reading, this is your chance. Think actors finding their way, script in hand, traces of character and a sense of adventure. It’s a privilege to experience a new work in its raw and almost gritty first form. MTC is making this possible. And all for as little as $5 a pop!"
