The Anzac Project
Ensemble Theatre presents
The Anzac Project

2 Apr 2015 to 10 May 2015

Two, one-act plays commissioned to commemorate 100 years since the Anzacs landed at Gallipoli: DEAR MUM AND DAD and LIGHT BEGINS TO FADE.

100 years from Gallipoli and what does it all mean now?

To commemorate the centenary, Ensemble Theatre has commissioned two one-act plays, but this is not some dry lesson in Australian history. The past is made new in these two original productions.
In DEAR MUM AND DAD Holly discovers a long forgotten letter and her great-granddad’s secret is finally uncovered.

The lyrical LIGHT BEGINS TO FADE follows a roomful of TV writers as they try to adapt the Gallipoli story for today’s audience. Meanwhile, the bloody past starts to haunt the present…..

“Sharp and entertaining.”
Sydney Morning Herald (for Geoffrey Atherden’s LIBERTY EQUALITY FRATERNITY)

“Bates’ script is compact, nimble, wryly funny and convincingly voiced.”
Sydney Morning Herald (for EVERY SECOND)
