Big interest in all eight plays being 'replayed' at Micro Theatre Festival this year

EIGHT of the most popular plays from the first three years of Newcastle’s Micro Theatre Festival are being presented at this year’s event. 

And, with the plays having different directors and actors, people who saw the original stagings are eagerly looking forward to seeing them again.

The 2018 season, Micro Theatre – The Director’s Cut, had three directors involved in the original stagings read all the plays and choose the ones they would most like to see again.

Four plays will be presented for six performances between June 14 and 23 at each of two intimate venues: The Press Bookhouse, at 462 Hunter Street, Newcastle, and Studio21 Artspace, 21 Bennett Street, Hamilton.

The shows at both venues can be seen on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, at 7pm, from June 14 to 23. Tickets, $18, can be bought through stickytickets.com.au. 

See microtheatre.com.au for more information.

Writers are also invited to submit proposed plays for Micro Theatre Festival 2019 from November 28.
