A workshop that builds confidence in creating comic characters.
Over six Sundays the workshop will not only work on existing
sketch comedy scripts but will explore the process of creating
sketch comedy material through improvisation. This the first
opportunity to participate in the sketch comedy genre at The
Rehearsal Room and follows in the footsteps of the very successful
Sit Com Workshop.
Comedy Workshop commences on Saturday 6th November.
An evening of four monologues which explore the very real lives
of women in the unreal world of prostitution.
by Richard Sarell.
Minutes Thankyou Gypsy"
a monologue written, produced and performed by Melbourne GP CAROLINE
LLOYD. While not biographical, much of the substance comes from
real life stories from her five years of experience working with
women in the sex industry. Her compassionate understanding of
her subjects teams with an actors eye for character and a sense
of the absurd. The story details a country girls desperate
fall into the dangerous, fascinating and forbidden world of prostitution
and the tumultuous journey she takes. It deals with the themes
of loss of innocence, independence, safety and survival. The
second piece, "Yesterdays News", written by
Peter Barnes and performed by CARMEL HYLAND, is a comedy about
the life of a 113 year old woman, spanning 3 centuries. Her determination
to control her own life and not end up like her mother, selling
herself cheap leads to a life of high class prostitution,
drug running and a visit from the Queen.
other monologues, developed by TUILYN LIM and TANYA HANBY weave
between these two stories, underpinning the themes of secret
identities, illicit sex and the safety of money.
anyone who has ever wondered what goes on behind the windowless
façade of the local brothel, this is an evening of warmth
and honesty and a rare, intriguing insight into the cold, demanding,
deceptive world of sex for sale.
