The Mystery at Dunbar Mansion – A Comedy - written by Joe Thompson

Directed by – Rachel Vonk - 0419 929 692 -

The guests at the Dunbar mansion were nervous. It wasn't the fact that a savage storm had taken their lights and they had to do with old candelabras. Nor was it the fact that there were strange noises in the very walls of the mansion. And it was not that the storm had taken out the old bridge and downed the telephone lines leaving them cut off from civilization until such time as the bridge was reopened or the telephone lines were repaired. No, it was the presence in the mansion of Inspector Wallingford. For wherever he stayed there seemed to be an outbreak of that most hideous of social misconduct: Murder.

This is designed as a Youth play with players from the ages of 10-18 invited to audition.

Just a Strait Man – A Comedy – written by Rob Smith & John Mawson

Directed by - Guy Jackson - SMS: 0450 915 700

Trevor and Barney are a hit duo comedy act. They are waiting back stage preparing for another night at the Riviera Club. But Trevor and Barney are not the friends you would expect. Barney believes that Trevor is jealous of the laughs he gets and goads Trevor as being “just a straight man”. He then starts questioning Trevor about his state of mind and whether he needs counselling. As their tense interchanges continue, dark secrets begin to be exposed that lead to a giant twist that audiences won’t see coming.


 Trevor - Male - Adult (25+) Thinks he is the lead of the duo, a bit arrogant. Gets angry easily.

Barnes - Male - Adult (20+) Laid back doesn't stress easily. The more logical thinker of the duo.

Enid Haldeman, her friend Mid-twenties, the lady of the house, kind, caring, a real sweetheart

Felix Haldeman, Enid’s Husband Mid twenties to early thirties, a delightful chap, he’s a bit over being the only man at parties.
