Community Theatre

DAVID Greig’s play The Events finds hope in darkness, which given the subject matter is not an easy task. Set in the aftermath of a shooting at a local town hall where a community choir meets, the work blends theatre and music in a beautiful story about healing.

Black Swan State Theatre Company artistic director Clare Watson directed Catherine McClements (Water RatsRush) and Johnny Carr in the work two years ago for audiences in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide and has brought her two-hander cast to Perth for a season at Studio Underground from June 21 to July 8. Melbourne-based McClements plays vicar and community choir leader Claire, who must deal with her emotions after the event.

Community Television Broadcasting reporter Tony Aderemi caught up with the main cast members.
