Presented with Queensland Theatre Company

Rehearsed Play Reading directed by Jon Halpin

"A touching fable about the theater, by a writer who was born for the theater." Chicago Tribune

Queensland Theatre Company presents Eugene Gilfedder and Tim Dashwood in a rehearsed play reading of A Life in the Theatre by premier American playwright, David Mamet.

This funny and loving ode to the trials and joys of a life onstage examines the relationship between two actors in a small town repertory theatre.

Robert, a stage veteran, is intent on teaching young, up-andcoming actor John the tricks and truths of the trade. As the two spar onstage and off, their professional rivalry gradually overshadows their friendship creating an almost imperceptible but deeply felt shift in power between teacher and student.

Mamet's comic, clever and sharply observed piece juxtaposes the real world behind the scenes with the actors' performances in front of the footlights.

Wednesday 9 1.00pm $22 The J
Duration: 90 minutes, no interval.
