Next Club Night
June 29 at 7.30pm, Cochran Hall

Our next rehearsed reading is on Friday June 29th, when Michelle Soper is directing Blind Eye by April Phillips. Playmarket describes the story of this riveting play thus: “Wally and Vera are a salt of the earth couple in their golden years. They have lived on the same street their entire lives. They have kept to themselves and led decent lives. Or have they?
A malicious attack on the old man results in two strangers entering their lives - strangers who gradually unravel a long-held and shameful secret with devastating consequences. What the strangers discover will disorient their own moral compasses and question the clarity of right and wrong.”
Heavy stuff for a fun night out, I hear you say, but don’t be put off – April Phillips has performed in theatres all over New Zealand and her playwriting includes international hits and has gained several awards. Why wouldn’t you take this opportunity to see one of her plays – for free and with supper thrown in!
Come to Cochran Hall for a 7:30 start on Friday June 29th and join your fellow KAT thespians at this stimulating club night.
All members and would-be members welcome.
