Congratulations to all of us! Palestinian play highlighting challenges of life in Gaza during the war of 2008-2009 has been selected for the 2016 Victorian Certificate of Education Drama list. The play Tales of a City by the Sea by Palestinian Australian playwright Samah Sabawi was one of 16 of more than 50 submissions selected for the 3 VCE Playlists. As a result, it will be seen and studied by hundreds of year 11 & 12 Theatre students in Victoria and it will be published by Currency Press and disseminated among these students.
This is groundbreaking to say the least! But to be able to produce the play next year so students can watch it, we need your help. So please come and join us on November 22nd and celebrate with us this wonderful news and help us raise funds for next year’s production and for our national tour so we can present this important piece of work not only in Melbourne but in other Australian cities.
The fundraiser will be held on November 22 at 6:00pm on the rooftop of Arcadia Hotel , 2 Toorak Road, South Yarra.
Tickets are $45.00
