About 400 people attended this year’s lunchtime theatre season!
Now in its fourth year, Three for Free returned with a season of work created, performed, written and directed by graduates of our Bachelor of Performing Arts program. This season makes a popular contribution to the fabric of our campus community and provides graduates and staff with an opportunity to develop and share their professional work while providing the broader campus
community with top class free lunchtime entertainment.
This year we welcome Ben Grant in his hypnotic performance The Shrink and Swell of Knots directed by Christian Leavesley. We are also delighted to welcome back Sarah Collins with Choir Girl, a new production which has thrilled audiences at both Melbourne and Adelaide Fringe Festivals. Our season rounds up this year with Mark Wilson’s trans-gendered take on Lady Macbeth in Unsex Me, a production Australian Stage called “a cross between Freddie Mercury and Richard Dawkins”. Three for Free truly offers something for everyone! So grab your lunch and make it along to the Alexander Theatre (or the George Jenkins Theatre on the Peninsula campus) for lunchtime theatre at its best!
