THE WRITER is a sparkling new comedy that raises the curtain on live theatre.
 
Iconic Australian playwright Mark Anderson once brawled with director, Senter Mantro.  Now Mantro is the newly appointed Artistic Director of the Crown Arts Theatre, due to stage Anderson's latest play. 
 
Jerri Paul is a leading lady of theatre, due to appear in the play, who conducts a sizzling affair with Rory Buckman, an emerging playwright anxious to cut across Mark Anderson's bows. 
 
Celene Cartwright rescued Crown Arts when it was about to become an office block and carpet showroom and built it back up by hiring old-time overseas actors and comics to appear in comedies. 
 
Now the theatre's again in crisis and she's trying to cover it up.  Oh yes, and then there's Margot "Crusty" Smith, Mark Anderson's personal manager, who wields great power, but not for much longer.
 
THE WRITER features Eddie Ellis, Linda Morgan, Luke Lanham,
 
Gail Evans, Sam Coward and Carine Bail,
 
directed by David Berker.
 
Coming to The Indee at Eumundi soon.  7.30pm Friday March 7th, Saturday 8th, Friday 14th, Saturday 15th plus Sunday 9th at 2pm and Sunday 16th at 5pm.
 
Night performances $20, concessions $18.  Groups of eight or more and Sundays $18.
