National Playwright Competition

It appears performances for Boroondara's "National Playwright Competition" are on again. Things sneak up to quickly, and with busy theatre weekend coming up again, I'm not sure that I'll make it this year. They get some nice plays, though, and it can be an opportunity to shop for plays for Hartwell's one-act season. (Personally, I want to do John Tilbroek's No Strings one day; possibly my favourite one-act play.)

It strikes me as an odd title. I guess they mean that they accept plays from outside the City, but it sort of sounds like the one and only, authoritative competition for new one-act plays.

On the subject of theatre:

ELT's Music Hall this Saturday. A table of our own, which is good. Haven't been for a few years, so it's time to practice our booing and hissing.

VDL Awards on Sunday. Theresa and I get to sit on competing tables; mine an underweight one, topped up with people from another theatre company.

EDITED TO ADD: Boroondara Theatre Company doesn't have a web site (that I can find). This makes it rather difficult to find details. :-(
